PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Phoenix Police say the man accused of killing four people, including his wife and two daughters, had his guns taken away in 2018 only to be given back days later.
According to Phoenix Police, Smith had three guns taken from him in November of 2018 after a neighbor reported Smith saying he had a gun and was yelling that people were trying to kill him.
Police say during the incident Smith was not aggressive and cooperated with officers, but they petitioned him into the Urgent Psychiatric Center and impounded three of his guns.
One week later, police said Smith returned to retrieve his guns and was given them back after a records check found no outstanding warrants or that he was a prohibited possessor.
Police say the suspect killed his family at their home near 75th Avenue and Camelback before going to another location near 67th Avenue and Osborn and fatally shooting the man because he believed was having an affair with his wife.
Sgt. Thompson says the suspect was arrested while driving away from an apartment complex where the man had been shot dead and two others were shot and wounded.
