(NBC News) A police SWAT team on Friday arrested a suspect in a string of shootings along an Arizona freeway that have put drivers on edge over recent weeks, the governor said.

The man in custody owned a weapon that was "forensically linked" to the first four shootings, Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead said at a news conference on Friday night.
