KNXV Police investigate one of at least eight shooting sites in West Valley Arizona

ONE person has been killed and 12 injured after a gunman went on a shooting rampage in Arizona on Thursday.

There were eight different shootings that occurred within a 90-minute span, Peoria police Sgt. Brandon Sheffert said during a news conference. Some suffered other injuries, such as shrapnel from broken glass, related to a auto crash, according to Brandon Sheffert, public information officer for the Peoria Police Department, the agency leading the investigation. It's unclear how those victims were injured.

Three Banner Health hospitals confirmed to ABC News that they received nine patients from what they referred to as Thursday's "drive-by shooting incident". Two were at Banner Boswell, three patients were at Banner Thunderbird and four were at Banner Del Webb.

A weapon was recovered in the suspect's vehicle, according to Hale, though no additional details were available on the type of gun. Police are still investigating a motive, Sheffert said, though they don't believe it was related to road rage.

"We want more information on this so we can figure out exactly what happened", Sheffert said.

Peoria authorities received a call at 11:10 a.m. about a vehicle with occupants inside being fired upon by someone in another vehicle, Sheffert said.

The suspect was stopped after firefighters spotted a vehicle matching the description of multiple reports, and he did not resist arrest.

Officer Tommy Hale of the Surprise Police Department said that he does not believe there are any other suspects involved with the incident and that "there is no reason" for the public to feel unsafe.
