SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A major Scottsdale roadway has been shut down until 8 p.m. tonight as police investigate what prompted a naked carjacking suspect to go on a rampage through Scottsdale.
Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark said the incident began Friday afternoon with a carjacking at Hayden Road and Via de Ventura.
Witness photos from the area show a naked man standing on top of an SUV as another damaged vehicle sits in the intersection. Later photos show the vehicles sitting in the roadway blocked off by police crime tape.
According to Clark, the suspect fled the area, then drove the victim's car eastbound on Shea Boulevard and hit several other cars.
