PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix have arrested a man in connection with a shooting that led to a deadly rollover crash two months ago.

They say 35-year-old Steven Orona has been booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and drive-by shooting.

It was unclear Sunday if Orona has a lawyer yet for his case.

Police say Orona allegedly shot the driver of a car on Sept. 24 near Interstate 17.

They say 39-year-old Larry Milligan was pronounced dead on the scene.

Phoenix TV station ABC15 reported that police released a video and photos on social media searching for a suspect.

Police say detectives developed probable cause to arrest Orona and he allegedly admitted to shooting Milligan.

A possible motive for the shooting hasn't been released by police.
