Police confirm body found is that of suspected Phoenix shooter

PHOENIX — Police have confirmed that a body found Thursday at the Mesa Riverview shopping center is that of suspected Phoenix shooter Arthur Douglas Harmon.

The body was found early Thursday morning, along with a rental car that the suspect had been driving. Phoenix Sgt. Steve Martos said a gunshot wound to the body appeared to be self-inflicted.

Mesa police spokesman Anthony Landato said a handgun was found at the scene.

Harmon, 70, is the chief suspect in a Wednesday shooting spree that left one man dead and five other people injured at 16th Street and Glendale Avenue.

A landscaper found the body in a parking lot at the center, near Loop 202 and Dobson Road.

Police conducted a search of Harmon’s north Phoenix home at 28th Street and Acoma Drive after the shooting and learned he had left in a rented white Kia Optima. The license plate of that car matched that of the car found at Riverview.

No other information was immediately available.
