PHOENIX (AP) – Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in series of shooting attacks in Phoenix last year that left at least seven people dead and two others wounded over a four-month period.
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.
All but one of the killings took place in a predominantly Latino neighborhood between March and July of 2016.
Police arrested Saucedo last in connection with a separate 2015 killing.
Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams says tips from the public led to Saucedo being linked to last year’s killings.
