ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) – Two men suspected in a crime spree across three states, including a deadly Colorado carjacking, have been arrested in Oregon.
Oregon State Police say 31-year-old Jose Lopez-Jovel and 30-year-old Matthew Anthony Fanelli remained jailed Monday on multiple charges.
Authorities say Lopez-Jovel was arrested Saturday afternoon after an attempted carjacking at a Roseburg restaurant but Fanelli fled in their car.
Police say Fanelli fired several shots while driving down an interstate. He struck a patrol car and a passenger vehicle.
He then tried to carjack a couple’s vehicle. Police say he shot the man, critically injuring him, and assaulted the woman.
He was subsequently caught when his vehicle became disabled.
Authorities say Lopez-Jovel and Fanelli are suspected in robberies in Utah and Wyoming and fatally shooting a man in Denver.
