PHOENIX — Phoenix police say a Peoria man has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and other crimes in a fatal shooting that apparently stemmed from road rage.

They say a vehicle registered to 34-year-old Timothy Elliot Pascale left the scene of the Monday night shooting, but witnesses provided a vehicle description and license plate number.

Police say Pascale was arrested at his Peoria residence.

They say 21-year-old Chris Romo was a passenger in a car and was fatally shot.

The car’s 22-year-old driver and an 18-year-old woman who happened to be walking in a nearby parking lot are hospitalized in stable condition after being shot and wounded.

Their names haven’t been released yet.

It’s not immediately clear Tuesday whether Pascale has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
