Arizona Department of Public Safety (ADPS) detectives have arrested 36-year-old Christopher Hoffman for the road rage shooting he committed along SR 101 near Bell Road, on Saturday morning, October 3.
With the assistance of witnesses and vigilant citizens, detectives were able to locate Hoffman and vital evidence of the crime.
Hoffman has admitted involvement and the evidence located by State detectives directly links him to the shooting.
Hoffman was booked into the Maricopa County Jail for drive by shooting, aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm in the city limits and possession of a dangerous drug.
We are grateful for the support that Arizonans continue to impart on the men and women of the Department.
There is no evidence at this time that links this isolated road rage incident with any of the Department's shooting investigations dating back to August, 2015.
