UPDATE 1: On 5-17-17 at approximately 10:05 PM an unknown subject came into the Coconino County Jail Lobby and attempted to summon an officer to report a crime.  The subject was told to go to the Flagstaff Police Department to speak with an officer.  He went to the police department lobby and attempted to enter but doors were locked. He used the phone to call dispatch, but left before his call was answered.  He left and returned to the property multiple times.  At 11:08 PM the victim left the jail lobby and was confronted by the unknown male in the parking lot.  The victim was asked if he worked there (says no) and the suspect told him he was trying to get inside.  The suspect then shot the victim one time and robbed him.  The suspect then fled the area in a vehicle. 

The victim was transported to the hospital and treated for his injuries.

On 5-18-17, after the photograph was released via social media and other media outlets, police received a call informing them that the suspect was David Scrum, 38 years of age, of Flagstaff, Arizona.

Police contacted him there and he confessed to being involved in the shooting.

Scrum was arrested for Attempted 2ndDegree Homicide. He was then booked into Coconino County Jail.

As of this time and date this case is pending further investigation and more information may be released as the case develops. Currently investigators are requesting search warrants for the suspect vehicle and residence to retrieve the firearm and other evidence.
