PHOENIX -- A man wanted for questioning in at least one homicide was taken into custody after he crashed into a pickup truck and fled into a Phoenix parking garage on Friday.

Phoenix plain-clothes officers had the investigative lead under surveillance Friday afternoon. When they attempted to stop him in his vehicle, he fled.

The man, identified as Adrian Gallegos, 24, crashed into a pickup truck at 20th Street and Cambridge Avenue and fled on foot into a nearby parking garage. He was taken into custody after a short search by officers.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.

Sgt. Trent Crump said Gallegos faces charges of driving on a suspended license, endangerment, unlawful flight, resisting arrest and leaving the scene of an accident. Investigators are continuing to look into other criminal charges.

Gallegos' passenger also fled from officers on foot, but he was released without charges.

Crump said Gallegos is wanted for questioning in at least one homicide but did not give more specifics.
