Authorities have released police documents that outline the evidence that led to the arrest of the suspect in a string of Phoenix serial killings.

The documents were released Friday after ABC15 and other media organizations took action to get prosecutors to unseal the case.

The documents explain how authorities linked 23-year-old Aaron Saucedo to the "Serial Street Shooter" case. They say evidence found at crime scenes match up with evidence found in his vehicles.

Police also say Saucedo emerged as a possible culprit several months ago after two witnesses told authorities he matched a composite sketch of the suspect and drove a BMW similar to one seen at the crimes. Homicide detectives interrogated him in December, about five months before he was arrested.
