Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7

Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7

But police on Monday said they had tied Saucedo to nine killings in all - eight random victims and one man that he knew.

Two of the added shootings were from August 2015 and the third was from New Year's Day 2016, more than three months before the first of the shootings previously attributed to the Serial Street Shooter. He killed Manny Castro Garcia on June 10, 2016.

"I'm really just shocked", she said.

Marina Smith, the partner of 21-year-old Diego Verdugo-Sanchez, who was gunned down on April 1, 2016, said she welcomed news of the arrest but was still struggling with his loss.

She said she had grown frustrated about being kept in the dark about the investigation.

A survivor of one shooting told News 12 that after police showed up at his home with photos, he recognized Saucedo's face. Authorities investigated Saucedo more closely and connected him to the serial killings. In the last four months, seven people were shot and killed.

One of the nine people was a 61-year-old man killed in August 2015 whom Saucedo knew through his mother.

Police say a man accused of killing two engaged doctors at a luxury Boston condominium building has a criminal history of robbing banks.

Phoenix police announced Monday afternoon that 23-year-old Aaron Juan Saucedo was taken into custody in connection with the case that authorities said was the work of a serial killer.

The gunman's targets included men, women and children, many of them ambushed near their homes in a working-class neighborhood from August 2015 to July 2016. Records show Saucedo was pulled over for allegedly running a red light on October 27, 2015, just a month after the first killing.

Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams says tips from the public led to Saucedo being linked to last year's killings.

The Maricopa County prosecutor said his office hadn't yet decided which charges they would bring to trial.

Nine people were killed and two injured in the shootings, which began in west Phoenix's Maryvale neighborhood.

A tip from the community led investigators to Aaron Saucedo, 23, and detectives were able to link him to the string of attacks by analyzing ballistics evidence, surveillance video and witness statements, police said.
