GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- Kansas City, Mo. Police Chief Darryl Forte tweeted late on Thursday afternoon that a suspect from the highway shootings is in custody.

The arrest comes about a week after police had connected 12 of approximately 20 highway shootings in an investigation that stretched as far back as 2013. FOX 4's Eric Burke reports from the scene in Grandview that police aren't saying much right now, but more details are expected to be released at about 7:30 on Thursday night.

FOX 4's Megan Brilley had a chance to speak with Chief Forte as the news broke.

A tactical team reportedly made the arrest of a lone black male suspect within the last hour at a home in Grandview. The investigation in the last three weeks focused on a single suspect and police believe they have that suspect in custody now.

Chief Forte informed the media later on Thursday evening that no charges have been filed against the suspect but more developments are expected with the case on Friday.
