Phoenix serial killing suspect arrested in deaths of 7

The suspect in the Phoenix Serial Street Shooter case had two words for the court when he was read a long list of charges he faces Monday. A judge ordered him held without bail.

Aaron Jean Saucedo, 23, was booked Monday on a total of 26 charges relating to 12 shooting incidents that left nine people dead, the Arizona Republic reports.

All but one of the killings took place in a predominantly Latino neighborhood between March and July of 2016.

"Thank you. It was terrifying having a monster like this on the streets", a Twitter user wrote after Phoenix police announced Saucedo's arrest. But police on Monday said they had tied Saucedo to nine killings in all - eight random victims and one man that he knew.

Police previously said at least seven people were killed and two others wounded over a four-month period a year ago.

Other victims cops believe were killed by Saucedo are Diego Verdugo-Sanchez and Krystal White, who were both gunned down in April of previous year; and Horacio De Jesus Peña and Manuel Castro Garcia, who were fatally shot last June.

"They didn't look for him at all".

The weapon was the same type used in the freeway shootings - a High-Point 9mm pistol - but authorities say Saucedo had nothing to do with that case. "The police didn't care".

April 1, 2016: A 21-year-old man, Diego Verdugo-Sanchez, was shot and killed in front of a home around 9 p.m.

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

During their hunt, they began referring to the suspect as the "serial street shooter". But they would not elaborate, and details of the evidence assembled against Saucedo were sealed by a judge at prosecutors' request.

Witnesses described the shooter as a young, lanky Hispanic man who drove a BMW sedan, helping develop a composite sketch that bears a striking similarity to Saucedo.

She said investigators worked round the clock to connect Saucedo, who was employed part-time as a bus driver, to the series of homicides. All of the killings were random except for the first one, Williams said. However, the Department of Public Safety said the gun used to kill Romero was test-fired as a part of the highway shooting investigation.

Police did not provide a motivation or details about why they believe Saucedo opened fire.

Experts said some of the circumstances surrounding the case are unusual, including Saucedo's young age.

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.

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.

Aaron Saucedo, 23, was arrested in April and later charged with murder in connection with the first of the killings, which occurred in August 2015, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters at a news conference.
