Teen homicide suspect arrested following high speed chase

WIKIEUP – A teenager who reportedly shot and killed his father in Glendale was arrested following a high-speed pursuit in Kingman. The Tuesday, May 28 incident is thoroughly detailed in Maricopa County Juvenile Court records.

Glendale police officers responding to a report that a 14-year-old male shot his father located the wounded subject in a family residence on Delmonico Lane at about 4:00 p.m. The victim, Joshua Goldman, 39, was unresponsive and unconscious and died about a half-hour later, following transport to a local hospital.

The Probable Cause (PC) statement in the Court records reveal Goldman’s daughter told police she was in a verbal argument with her father when her brother “stepped in” and shot him. The brother and his friend reportedly fled the scene in Goldman’s Toyota Camry.

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) received information that the Camry was northbound on U.S. 93 near Wikieup at 6:41 p.m. A DPS sergeant subsequently spotted and attempted to stop the vehicle on Interstate 40, about eight miles outside Kingman.

The operator of the vehicle failed to stop and a westbound pursuit ensued at speeds as high as 140 miles per hour, according to DPS spokesman Bart Graves.

“The DPS sergeant was able to close the distance and deploy his grappler successfully on the rear left tire of the vehicle,” Graves said. “The suspect vehicle attempted to accelerate away but was restrained by the grappler and terminated efforts to flee upon arrival of additional troopers.”

The suspect and his friend were detained and transported back to Glendale for interviews.

The PC statement indicated the suspect told police that his dad was an historic illegal drug consumer who physically abused him for years. The teen said his father had beaten his sister for about three minutes when he shouted to get him to stop.

The suspect allegedly said he fired his weapon first as his dad approached him while reaching for his holstered firearm. Goldman’s weapon was still holstered where he was found at the shooting scene.

Police confronted the suspect, noting that his sister was uninjured and claimed her argument with Goldman was verbal, but not physical. He reportedly responded that his sister wasn’t telling the truth because she was scared.

The records indicate that seven 9mm casings were found at the scene of the shooting and that it appeared Goldman had been shot four times. A 9mm firearm was reportedly recovered from the suspect vehicle following the Kingman chase.
