There was an explosion at a home in Phoenix, Arizona (KTVK and KPHO) — Police claim a single gunman was responsible for 11 drive-by shootings in south and west Phoenix in the last six months, and they caught him using “sophisticated technology.”. A 24-year-old man named Manuel Sierra was apprehended by police in Buckeye, Arizona, on Wednesday.
It has been reported that Sierra has been stalking several members of the same family since she began seeing someone who was linked to one of them. On New Year’s Eve, Sierra allegedly shot up a residence and two cars near 25th Avenue and Baseline Road. After that, Sierra shot at homes and cars twice in March, six times in April, and twice in May, the most recent of which occurred on Wednesday.
No one was injured in half of the shootings, according to police, who added that individuals were inside the houses. According to authorities, Sierra also sent threatening text messages to her family members. “The violent potential and the violence displayed in these instances is unacceptable, and the Phoenix Police Department does everything it can in investigations like these to identify these suspects and hold them accountable by arresting them and allowing them to go through the justice system,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Ann Justus said.
It took hours of digital evidence analysis and hours of surveillance videos, according to the police, but they eventually found Sierra. According to Justus, “the outcome of this case was the painstaking investigation in each of these occurrences.” A total of 18 felony charges have been filed against Sierra, who was apprehended at 238th Avenue and Twilight Trail.
