US man arrested over death of 9 people

23-year-old Phoenix man Aaron Saucedo was arrested on suspicion of being the Phoenix 'serial street shooter'.

It was a rampage that killed nine people, stumped police for months and left Phoenix residents unnerved.

The so-called Serial Shooters randomly targeted pedestrians; Dale Hausner killed himself while in prison, and Samuel Dieteman is serving a life sentence.

On Monday, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams and Mayor Greg Stanton appeared with Maricopa County officials to announce there had been a break in the case. "Today we are closer to providing them the justice they deserve", Williams said.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's office obtained a court order sealing records related to the initial court appearance of 23-year-old Aaron Juan Saucedo in the case dubbed the Serial Street Shooter.

Phoenix police detectives sorted through 3,300 silent witness tips to lead them to the accused killer of nine.

Saucedo was a bus driver for the city of Phoenix through a temp agency for several months in July through August 2015, Phoenix police 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.

Police said they expect to pay out the $75,000 reward posted for information leading to an arrest.

Jesse Olivas, 22, (center) was killed in January 2016. He may be linked to the serial street shootings and the freeway shootings that plagued the Valley for years.

Saucedo's last suspected victim was Manny Castro Garcia, age 19, a recent high school grad who was shot and killed on June 10, the Arizona Republic reported.

Police were able to focus on Saucedo after they learned that he owned a 9mm handgun that he pawned off days after the murder.

" 'I had a gut feeling it was him, ' she told paper on Monday". Two new murders are linked to the investigation.

Castro said she was happy a suspect has been arrested but sad because it does not mean her son will come back.

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

The most prominent domestic violence hotline in the US says there's been a sharp increase in calls from abuse victims struggling with issues related to their immigration status.

The first shooting happened on March 17, 2016, when a Nissan drove past two teenagers, pulled a U-turn and a man inside the vehicle opened fire, hitting a 16-year-old boy in the arm, abdomen and hip.

A woman and her 12-year-old daughter were shot dead in one incident; a man and his four-year-old nephew escaped unhurt in another, reports NBC News.
