DPS identifies copycats in Phoenix highway shootings

Three men were arrested on Sunday for allegedly shooting at cars with a slingshot. The incidents were not related to the string of Phoenix area highway shootings.

Three 18-year-old men were jailed after admitting to flinging rocks at pedestrians and vehicles, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. Aaron Nottingham, Albert German and Christian Cook were booked on charges of assault, endangerment and criminal damage.

DPS Director Frank Milstead said the incidents are “copycats” and there was nothing linking them to any of the 11 incidents DPS has been investigating.
