MESA, AZ — A man has been arrested nearly two months after a Mesa food truck shooting that killed a baby and injured six others.
The Mesa Police Department said that Larry T. Miller, 29, faces charges including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, drive-by shooting, endangerment and aggravated assault.
Public records from the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation & Reentry, show that he was released from prison in May 2019 after he was sentenced to 10.5 years on armed robbery charges.
On Oct. 16, police said a gunman driving an SUV stopped on Guadalupe Road and shot into a crowd of people eating outside food trucks in a parking lot around 9:30 p.m. before speeding off.
Three adults and four children, ages 6, 9 and 16, were injured. A one-year-old baby died two days later. The wounded were not all from the same family.
Mesa Police Chief Ken Cost said at the time that a man was seen assaulting a woman at the same location earlier Friday night and one of the food vendors and other bystanders intervened.
Police confirmed Monday to the Associated Press that Miller was believed to have been involved in that earlier altercation.
It was not immediately known if Miller had an attorney who could comment on the case pending against him.
