  • The Latest: Police now say 9 killed in serial shootings case

Police are still determining a motive, and have not found correlations between most of the victims and Saucedo. Authorities say Saucedo did not know the other victims.

A Phoenix man was arrested on Monday in connection with a series of shootings that left several people dead in the city, police said at a news conference.

Chief Jeri Williams said police have linked Saucedo to two additional killings - the August 2015 homicide of 61-year-old Raul Romero, and the January 2016 death of Jessie Olivas - in the course of their investigation. In the last four months, seven people were shot and killed. On Monday, they raised the number of people killed to nine and said there were 12 total shootings - with the first one happening in 2015.

The targets of the serial shooter included men, women and children, many of them ambushed near their homes, between August 2015 and July 2016.

For more than a year, Phoenix police were stumped by a string of killings in which a shooter stalked victims after dark and gunned them down as they stood outside their homes or sat in their cars.

Police fielded thousands of tips, went door-to-door in a largely Hispanic neighborhood of Phoenix where the shootings happened and analyzed ballistics from a different, unrelated serial shooting case.

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

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

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

Police said they investigated whether Saucedo might be the so-called Phoenix freeway shooter, believed responsible for nearly 12 incidents, none of them fatal, on Interstate 10 in 2015. The suspect struck again the next day but didn't kill anyone.

Stefanie Ellis, 33, her 12-year-old daughter, Maleah, and a friend, Angela Linner, 31, were killed outside their home on June 12, 2016.

"I'm happy my kids are going to be able to walk outside and I won't have to fear that they're going to get shot", Pastrana said.
