PHOENIX (AP) - Police in Arizona say they have a suspect in custody in connection with the killing of a man who was operating a state police photo radar unit along a highway in Phoenix.

Authorities did not immediately release any details Monday. The Phoenix Police Department said it planned to give out more information later in the day.

Police said the 51-year-old radar operator was shot Sunday evening and died at a hospital.

He worked for RedFlex Traffic Systems Inc., which has a contract with the Arizona Department of Public Safety to operate photo radar enforcement vehicles to identify speeders on state highways.

The Redflex company said Monday that it had taken its 40 mobile photo radar units out of service because of concern for the safety of its employees.
