SJ police arrest man wanted for multiple shootings
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- A violent criminal with an arrest warrant for attempted murder was taken into custody Friday morning by San Jose police.
Officials say 30-year-old Mitchell Pope is a suspect in as many as three shootings in the San Jose area this past year.
According to police, they've been tracking Pope for the past two months. They say he apparently altered his looks to evade capture.
Investigators located Pope inside a home near Senter and Lewis roads Friday morning, and took him into custody without incident.
