Police in Buckeye say a man has been arrested in a drive-by shooting case.

They say 22-year-old Jahvaun Rodgers has been booked into jail on suspicion of drive-by shooting, aggravated assault, misconduct involving weapons and criminal damage.

Rodgers allegedly fired three shots into two parked cars at a home in Buckeye on Feb. 25.

Surveillance video linked Rodgers to the case along with a witness who gave police a suspect description.

Police say when Rodgers was arrested Wednesday, he had a handgun in the driver door panel of his car.

They say the gun was test fired and the rounds matched shell casings found at the shooting scene.
