PHOENIX -- (KNXV) -- Police swarmed a convenience store near Interstate 10, detained a man and seized his white Chevrolet Tahoe on Friday, raising hopes of a resolution to the freeway shootings rattling Phoenix.

Department of Public Safety Officials have identified the man as Oscar De La Torre Munoz, 19, of Avondale.

De La Torre Munoz and the woman were taken into custody for questioning, but DPS spokesman Bart Graves said De La Torre Munoz was only a "person of interest" in the case.

Graves had said earlier Friday that investigators were questioning De La Torre Munoz "about a number of things" besides the freeway shootings, but declined to disclose what that entailed.

De La Torre Munoz was later booked into jail for possession of marijuana.

De La Torre Munoz made his initial appearance in court Saturday morning around 5 a.m.
