They are searching for former MLB pitcher Charlie Haeger. He is considered their prime suspect in the shooting.
The police found his unoccupied vehicle near Flagstaff, Arizona on Saturday. At this time, they are not revealing where he went next.
The investigation is ongoing at this time. According to Scottsdale Police Department spokesman Sgt. Ben Hoster, Haeger is wanted on suspicion of murder and aggravated assault.
In their investigation, a witness claimed that she saw Haeger leave his ex-girlfriend’s residence with a gun on Friday night. The woman also heard gunshots coming from Long’s bedroom.
The SWAT team was called. However, Haeger was long gone by the time they entered the residence and found Long dead.
