PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Phoenix police have made an arrest in connection to an armed robbery and the death of a man. On Saturday, police said 30-year-old Jose Martinez was arrested.
The investigation started when officers found a man near 19th Avenue and Alice around 4 a.m. Friday morning. Phoenix Police Sgt. Vincent Cole says officers were called to the area about a man on the side of the road. When they arrived, they located the man and confirmed he was dead with obvious signs of trauma.
Cole says a little bit later just after 5 a.m. near 19th Avenue and Hatcher, officers responded to a separate incident of an armed robbery. A person of interest was detained later that day, but it's not clear Martinez is the same person who was detained. The investigation is ongoing.
