Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7


Police on Monday announced the arrest of a 23-year-old suspect in connection to the Serial Street Shooter case in Arizona in 2016.

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

Most of the killings by a gunman dubbed the Serial Street Shooter took place in a predominantly Latino neighborhood between August 2015 and July 2016.

Police gave few details on how they linked Saucedo to the killings and they did not say why the attacks stopped last July.

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.

"We hope that our community will rest a little easier and that our officers will get a little more sleep knowing that the wheels of justice are finally in motion", Police Chief Jeri Williams said.

Phoenix police have zeroed in on Saucedo as the killer, and one witness reported that the killer was driving a black BMW, a vehicle fitting that description, belonging to Sausedo, has been seized by Phoenix police. Saucedo was charged with 26 felony accounts, including multiple murders and drive-by shootings, she said at a news conference.

Detectives eventually linked the disparate victims through crime-scene evidence and issued a sketch of a suspect - but for almost a year, they had no big breaks in the case.

Aaron Juan Saucedo, 23, had been arrested last month in connection with the August 2015 murder of his mother's boyfriend, 61-year-old Raul Romero.

"The fact of them finding somebody, at least it was some type of news", Smith said.

This undated photo provided by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office shows Aaron Saucedo. However, they said, none of the evidence matched.

The next shooting didn't happen until April 1, 2016, when Verdugo-Sanchez was fatally shot.

It wasn't until March 17, St. Patrick's Day 2016, that the series known as the Serial Street Shootings began.

Stefanie Ellis, 33, her 12-year-old daughter, Maleah, and a friend, Angela Linner, 31, were killed outside their home on June 12, 2016. Castro-Garcia, 19, was fatally shot on June 10, 2016.

In the most deadly single attack, two women and a 12-year-old girl were shot to death in front of a home before dawn on June 12, 2016, police said.
