Serial killer suspect went undiscovered for more than a year

He faces 27 felony charges - first-degree murder, discharging a firearm at a residence, drive-by shooting, first-degree attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault, discharging a firearm at a nonresidence, endangerment and criminal damage.

A judge temporarily granted a prosecution request to seal records related to the appearance, court spokeswoman Karen Arra said. "The fact of them finding somebody, at least it was some type of news", she said.

All three were shot as they sat in a auto listening to music outside their Maryvale home in Phoenix, according to police. "Today we are closer to providing them the justice they deserve", Williams said.

One of the victims, a 21-year-old man who survived being shot at point-blank range on July 11, 2016, while sitting in a auto with his 4-year-old nephew, told Phoenix NBC affiliate KPNX in April that police had recently visited him with several photos of suspects. Others were afraid to come forward because many are immigrants in the USA illegally or don't have their paperwork in order.

After that, police said, investigators learned that the 23-year-old had sold a Hi-Point 9 mm handgun to a pawn shop 16 days later, on September 1, 2015.

However, the police has not identified a motive behind the shootings.

By last month, Lora Romero had nearly given up hope that Phoenix police would ever find the gunman who murdered her father, Raul, in August 2015.

Phoenix police say they have caught the man responsible for Phoenix-area serial killing. Authorities investigated him more closely and connected him to the serial killings. Records show Saucedo was pulled over for allegedly running a red light on October 27, 2015, just a month after the first killing. Police fielded 3,000 calls and email tips in the case through their Silent Witness tip program. Manuel Castro Garcia, 19, (center) was killed a week later on June 10.

Investigators initially believed a serial shooter was responsible for seven deaths previous year, but in recent weeks they determined two other victims were also shot by the same gunman, who they believe to be Saucedo, including the victim killed in August 2015.

"This is a good day in the city of Phoenix", Stanton said. "But my son is not coming back".

"I had a gut feeling it was him", she told the Republic. Diego Verdugo-Sanchez, 21, was shot outside a home at around 9pm.

Sylvia Ellis, the mother and grandmother of two victims, said she was reeling from news of the charges after the trail seemed to have grown cold for so long.

Saucedo's targets included men, women and children, many of them ambushed near their homes in a working class neighbourhood from August 2015 to July 2016. The suspect struck again the next day but didn't kill anyone.

The next shooting did not happen until April 1 2016, when Mr Verdugo-Sanchez was fatally shot.
