Police on Monday announced the arrest of a 23-year-old suspect in connection to the Serial Street Shooter case in Arizona in 2016.
Saucedo was taken into custody last month and charged with the August 2015 murder of Raul Romero, 61 - a homicide that hadn't yet been linked to the pattern.
New evidence and tips from the community led police to charge him with the eight other killings that happened between January 1, 2016, and June 12, 2016, Howard said.
A survivor of one shooting told News 12 that after police showed up at his home with photos, he recognized Saucedo's face.
A tip from the community led investigators to Aaron Saucedo, 23, and detectives were able to link him to the string of attacks by analyzing ballistics evidence, surveillance video and witness statements, police said. "Today we are closer to providing them the justice they deserve". The weapon, that has been identified as the weapon that killed Romero, as well as other victims, was pawned to a pawn shop in Phoenix, it was pawned just over two weeks after Romero's murder on September 1, 2015, and was bought by a new owner on June 28th, 2016, making that weapon unavailable for use as the killing weapon, determined by police, for all of the other killings attributed to Saucedo. The Associated Press was unable to reach Saucedo's public defender on Monday.
She said he preferred playing basketball with friends to partying.
Castro said she was happy a suspect has been arrested but sad because it does not mean her son will come back.

Police in Phoenix are frustrated.
Nobody was killed in those shootings, in which about a dozen vehicles on the interstate outside the city were shot between August 29 and September 10.
Police say Saucedo shot at two teenage boys on March 17, 2016, striking one of them in the arm.
Police also have linked Saucedo to the April 19, 2016 death of 60-year-old Krystal White; the June 3, 2016, death of Horacio de Jesus Pena; and to the killings of two women, Angela Linner and Stefanie Ellis, and 12-year-old girl Maleah Ellis on June 12, 2016.
Shots were fired into a auto on July 11, 2016; a man and a 4-year-old boy inside escaped unhurt.
Some residents were apathetic at first but many got involved as the shootings continued, she said.
