Series of recent unsolved shootings linked forensically


The Phoenix Police Department has identified a recent series of 8 shootings, which has resulted in the deaths of 7 people since mid-March, as being connected forensically.  A police spokesman stated they have no evidence to believe the shootings have any connection to the Phoenix freeway shootings which took place last year.  Since the dismissal of charges against the man originally charged with the freeway shootings spree, no further suspect(s) have been identified.

 

Most of the recent shootings have taken place in the late evening or early morning hours in the West Valley’s Maryvale area, all in or near residential neighborhoods, and all involving a handgun.  A suspect in the case, a sketch of whom you can view at the link below, is reported to drive a sedan, though reports differ as to the color.

 

A $30,000 reward is offered by the Silent Witness Program for information in the case.
