Police say shell casing found in BMW linked Serial Street Shooting suspect to crimes

New developments show what police say tied suspect, Aaron Saucedo to the deadly attacks.

Newly-released court documents provide insight into the Phoenix Police Department's investigation into Serial Street Shootings suspect. The paperwork also reveals new details about the crimes in question.

The documents were released after 12 News and other news agencies went before a judge.

Aaron Saucedo, 23, who was already in custody on a 2015 homicide, was re-booked May 8 on 26 additional felony charges related to the Serial Street Shootings.

Phoenix police first contacted Suacedo as a person of interest on Dec. 22, 2016, according to police records. The paperwork also shows the steps investigators took to link Saucedo to each of the crimes.

On April 18, police impounded a black 2001 5 Series BMW from Saucedo's home. Inside they found a 9mm shell casing that, upon testing, matched the shell casings found at the scene of nine of the shootings.

According to the documents, in one of the shootings, which resulted in the death of 22-year-old Jesse Olivas, the suspect allegedly got out of his car after the shooting and kicked the victim twice before driving away.
