Law enforcement investigate a crime scene in Scottsdale, Ariz. Police also suspect Jones murdered a man and woman in a home in Fountain Hills, Arizona, before killing himself.

The leaders of the Scottsdale, Phoenix and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, as well as representatives of the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms were present at the briefing.

Here is the timeline of those shooting deaths, per Assistant Police Chief Rich Slavin with the Scottsdale Police Department.

Shots were fired as the SWAT team went into the room Monday morning, but police Sgt. Vince Lewis said officers did not fire any shots.

Nearly eight years after splitting from his wife, the Phoenix-area man began confronting people connected with the breakup and shooting them, killing six people in four days last week before ending his own life as police drew near, authorities said.

On Thursday, forensic scientist Steven Pitt was shot and killed outside of his Phoenix office.

Evidence from Thursday's and Friday's scenes appears to connect the shootings, Hoster said. "We had a match linking this homicide to the others". When that match was made, police felt confident in moving to arrest Jones, who had been followed for a day or two, Slavin said.

Jones spent hours in online videos griping about his ex-wife and the court system that sided with her in the divorce.

She appeared shy, laughing at the request, but eventually getting close enough for him to move in and plant a kiss on her mouth. It didn't "mean anything except to entertain and make other Filipinos in the gathering happy", she said, according to the PNA.

As a medical professional and a citizen I am deeply saddened by the tragedy caused by my ex-husband. "I also contacted the Scottsdale Police Department on Sunday morning". Witnesses reported hearing a loud argument and gunfire outside Pitt's office. Police got no matches when running the sample through DNA databases. The package contained a handgun that Slavin said belonged to the Fountain Hills victims. She then ran out of the office and flagged down a party bus driver to call for help.

Feldman was not believed to be at the office when paralegals Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were gunned down. It's not immediately clear when the couple separated and when they divorced.

That the suspect killed the victims in their workplaces, and that he was unidentified for days, only raised fears for Silverman that he might run into the killer. "We ask for privacy during this hard time". However, the pistol belongs to the man found dead at this home.

Without psychiatric help, Jones "is going to continue to unravel", the doctor, Steven Pitt, testified, according to a 2010 court document from the divorce.

Dr. Levine, on the other hand, may have simply been in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time. A partner at the family law firm, Elizabeth Feldman, is listed as the lawyer who represented Connie Jones in her divorce from Dwight Lamon Jones. She was a dedicated mother, wife and daughter.

Levine, who took over the space, was not involved in the divorce case.

Levine, the fourth victim, owned a clinic called Peak Life Solutions and was a "life coach hypnotherapist", according to his profile on Psychology Today.

Dr. Marshall Levine was found shot dead outside his office near Mountain View and Hayden roads in Scottsdale around 12:15 a.m. Saturday. "I can not express the emotions I feel for the innocent families touched by this senseless violence", Connie Jones said.
