Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7

Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7

Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in series of shooting attacks in Phoenix previous year that left at least seven people dead and two others wounded over a four-month period.

During Monday's announcement that police had arrested Aaron Saucedo for the 2016 Serial Street Shootings, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams added three shootings to the case.

Phoenix mayor Greg Stanton congratulated police and other law enforcement officials who hunted down the suspect.

"They had a clear mission: bring this killer to justice and get it right".

All but one of the killings took place in a predominantly Latino neighborhood between March and July of 2016.

Police did not provide a motivation or details about why they believe Saucedo opened fire.

One tipster could receive a $75,000 reward for information leading to the arrest, police said.

Sylvia Ellis, the mother and grandmother of two victims, said she was reeling from news of the charges after the trail seemed to have grown cold for so long.

She said he preferred playing basketball with friends to partying.

Saucedo's attorney did not respond to a request for comment.

Gisela Castro, the mother of shooting victim Manuel Castro-Garcia, said news of the arrest felt like she was reliving the day she was told her son had been killed.

Police are hunting for a serial killer terrorizing the Phoenix area. Authorities investigated Saucedo more closely and connected him to the serial killings.

"When they showed me the picture, I did get a little chills", he said.

He was arrested last month for the August 2015 murder of Raul Romero after police traced the gun used in that shooting to him, according to NBC affiliate News 12.

Police added there were no connections between the victims in the case. However, they said, none of the evidence between the two series matched.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard, a police spokesman, said it was possible that more incidents might be tied to the suspect.

Witnesses said the shooter drove nice cars - a white Cadillac or Lincoln type vehicle and a black late '90s or early 2000s 5 Series BMW.

Shots were fired into a home on August 12, 2015; no one was hurt.

On August 16, 2015, Romero was shot multiple times in the driveway of his home and died shortly after at a hospital.

Jesse Olivas, 22, was shot dead on the street on January 1, 2016. In the most recent attack on July 11, 2016, a 21-year-old man and his 4-year-old nephew escaped injury after the gunman shot at a vehicle they were sitting in.
