PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Police say they’ve arrested a man suspected to have been involved in a double homicide at a west Phoenix hotel earlier this week.

Phoenix police said that 33-year-old Jose Gregorio Inchaurriga Ruacho was found near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Thomas Road early Saturday morning around 2:30 a.m. Ruacho is suspected of being involved in the death of 64-year-old Douglas Earl Emison and one other victim who has not been identified yet. Both men were killed in a shooting at the HomeTowne Studios Phoenix West hotel near 51st Avenue and McDowell Road on Thursday morning.

Authorities previously asked people to be on the lookout for Ruacho’s pickup truck after he reportedly drove away from the crime scene.
