Former MLB Pitcher Charlie Haeger Wanted On Suspicion Of Murder

Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

Charles Haeger is being sought in connection to the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend in a Phoenix suburb Friday. Police have probable cause to arrest the 37-year-old on suspicion of murder and aggravated assault, Sgt. Ben Hoster of the Scottsdale Police Department said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

Police said Haeger's unoccupied vehicle was found near Flagstaff, Arizona, on Saturday.

Investigators determined that the victim's roommate heard gunshots when he returned home Friday and was confronted by Haeger as he exited the victim's bedroom, Hoster said.

"Haeger then pointed the handgun at the roommate. The roommate quickly escaped out of the back of the residence, and he was able to get a neighbor to call 911," Hoster added.

The victim's name was not released. Haeger "should be considered armed and dangerous," police said.

Haeger last pitched in the majors in 2010 when he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Haeger also played with the Seattle Mariners and the Chicago White Sox.
