PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a suspect who allegedly shot and critically wounded three men will be facing more charges now that one of the victims has died.

They say 27-year-old Eddison Jesus Noyola was booked into jail Friday on suspicion of three counts of first-degree murder, three counts of burglary and one count each of kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Police say one the men shot — 22-year-old Miireux-Michael Begaii — died Saturday night at a hospital.

Mr. Noyola was arrested Thursday in Glendale in a stolen vehicle.

The manhunt for Mr. Noyola began Tuesday night when he allegedly stole a gun and car from relatives.

Police say two men were shot in Phoenix and a third was shot later at another location in the city where Mr. Noyola’s 30-year-old girlfriend allegedly was kidnapped.
