Police: Azeri suspect phoned shooter during spree

Authorities in Azerbaijan say an accomplice in last week's shooting spree in the capital was on the cell phone with the gunman as he killed 12 people.
Nadir Aliyev was arrested after the attack last Thursday at an oil industry academy in Baku. He is from the same village as the man authorities say fatally shot 12 people and injured 13 others before killing himself.
Police and prosecutors alleged Monday that Aliyev helped the gunman by positioning himself close to the academy building and relaying information by phone during the attack. Authorities say the attacker, Farda Gadyrov, shot himself as police approached.
Police and prosecutors said that two other people have been detained, as well.
