Phoenix Police Say They Have Nabbed the Serial Shooter Who Killed 9

Phoenix police said they have arrested a gunman who killed nine people in a series of random shootings, NBC News reported.

Community tips led police to Aaron Saucedo, 23, who was arrested last month for the August 2015 murder of Raul Romero. Police received more than 3,000 tips before linking him to the other murders that took place between August 2015 and July 2016.

A survivor of one shooting told NBC affiliate News 12 that he recognized Saucedo when police showed up at his house with photos. Saucedo's face gave him chills, he told News 12.

"Today is a good day in the city of Phoenix," said the city's mayor, Greg Stanton.
