Chandler police arrest suspect after shooting with officers and major crash

The suspect allegedly fled the officer-involved shooting scene and was involved in a six-car crash, police said.

CHANDLER, Ariz. — Chandler police have arrested 32-year-old Arnold Serrano, who they say was involved in a shooting incident with police before allegedly causing a major crash on Saturday night. 

According to police, officers responded to a trespassing call at a mobile home near California St. and Chicago St. around 8 p.m.

When they arrived, they found Serrano refusing orders while in an RV parked in front of the mobile home. Police said Serrano then started the RV, crashed through the driveway gate and accelerated towards an officer.

Officers responded by shooting him, police said. 

Serrano allegedly drove the RV at a high rate of speed and caused a six-car crash at Dobson and Frye roads, with one vehicle catching fire. Ten patients were evaluated on the scene and three, including Serrano, were transported to the hospital in serious condition, officials said. 

The suspect was arrested and no officers were injured. The suspect sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
