PHOENIX — Authorities say a Peoria man arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and other crimes in an alleged road-rage shooting in Phoenix was involved in a previous road-rage incident.

Information regarding the previous incident is blacked out on a police probable-cause statement on 34-year-old Timothy Pascale’s arrest in the Monday night shooting, but other court documents indicate a man with the same name and birth date pleaded guilty in 2013 to disorderly conduct.

Police say 21-year-old Chris Romo was fatally shot while he was a passenger in a car stopped at an intersection. That car’s driver and an 18-year-old woman who was walking nearby were shot and wounded.

Pascale was arrested at his Peoria residence.

He remains jailed. Court records don’t list an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
