PHOENIX — A man suspected of killing a 10-year-old Phoenix girl in a road rage shooting has been arraigned in court.
Joshua Gonzalez pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning to charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and drive-by shooting.
Phoenix police say the 20-year-old was following a car carrying Summerbell Brown and her family on April 3 after he believed they had cut him off in traffic. They say Gonzalez then opened fire in their driveway, killing the girl and wounding her father.
A tip led investigators the next day to a home where they found Gonzalez, the suspect vehicle and a handgun.
Police say preliminary evidence ties the weapon to the shooting.
Gonzalez's next scheduled court appearance is June 6.
