    Police released this composite sketch of the suspected serial street shooter they believe killed seven people in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Police believe a serial killer in Phoenix may have added a ninth shooting on July 11, in which the gunman fired at a man and a 4-year-old boy sitting in a car, NBC News reported. 

    The new incident means the shooter tried to kill again, even after police put the city on alert. The man and boy were not injured. 

    Based on witness statements, police believe the suspect has access to several cars, including a white Cadillac or Lincoln, and a late 1990s or early 2000s 5 series BMW. Investigators have looked into whether he works as a mechanic or on a used car lot. 

    Officials thought the gunman’s spree ended in mid-June when he ambushed and fatally shot two women and a 12-year-old girl in their driveway.
