A suspect who may be linked to a series of shootings in Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona, is now surrounded by police, according to Scottsdale Police Sgt.

Police have said the killings of a forensic psychiatrist and two paralegals Thursday and Friday are related, and a fourth death at a mental health counseling facility may also be connected.

Sharp and Anderson were shot Friday inside a law office.

Scottsdale police said on Monday they have surrounded an Extended Stay Hotel on North 69 Street.

The third shooting happened just after midnight Saturday, when a man was found shot to death inside a business center located roughly halfway between Pitt's office and the law firm.

The body of 72-year-old Levine was found at his office near Mountain View and Hayden roads.

Facebook To Swap ‘Trending’ Topics For Breaking News
In its announcement on Friday (June 1), Facebook said the section was driving only marginal traffic to news publishers. Facebook didn't announce any plans to bring back Trending, or some version of it in the future.

The two, Veleria Sharp and Laura Anderson, were paralegals for Burt, Feldman and Grenier, a family law firm.

Steven Pitt, the psychiatrist who worked on the JonBenet Ramsey case, was shot and killed on Thursday night. A decade later, he helped Phoenix police in the Baseline Killer investigation as they sought a man who was later convicted of killing nine people. Pitt, 59, was found critically wounded outside and pronounced dead at the scene.

Scottsdale, a city of about 250,000 residents east of Phoenix, is known for its resorts, spas and golf courses.

One woman managed to escape the building but died after being transported to a hospital. The suspect was described by police as a white man wearing a black cap with a short brim. Hoster did not identify the victim, who was discovered by someone known to him.

The killing occurred in an office park that houses mostly therapists and counselors.

Pitt consulted on the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation, and a number of other high-profile cases. She was more than a coworker, she was a friend, a mother, a grandmother, daughter and wife and gave all of herself to her family, her friends and her work. Cops don't know if the argument and shooting was work-related.
