Suspect in Missouri killing arrested after chase in Arizona

CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona authorities say they've arrested a man sought in a Missouri killing.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says 52-year-old Michael Mcafee was arrested Thursday night after a pursuit on westbound Interstate 10 in the southeastern outskirts of the Phoenix area.

According to the Arizona police agency, Mcafee's vehicle crashed after a chase that ended when officers deployed tire-puncturing devices.

The department says Mcafee was sought on a Missouri warrant in the shooting death Tuesday morning of a woman in University City, Missouri.

He was booked into the Pinal County jail in Florence.
