MARICOPA, Ariz. - Authorities say they've captured the suspect of a double homicide where a man and woman were found shot to death inside a Maricopa home on Aug. 18.
According to Maricopa Police, the shooting happened at around 4 a.m. in a neighborhood near Honeycutt and Hartman roads.
"Police have determined this was a domestic incident, not random," the department said in a statement.
Police say the suspect, 38-year-old Juan Jose Cazares Jr., was found just over 12 hours later in Tucson after fleeing the scene. The grey 2003 Dodge Ram he was driving was found as well, authorities say.
"Our detectives have taken over the scene. They are going to process the entire scene and make sure no stone is left unturned," a police spokesman said. "It's a violent scene. It's something we want to get the answers to and we will go from there."
