'Serial Shooter' guilty of murders

March 14, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A former janitor was convicted of murdering six people and attacking 19 others in a series of random nighttime shootings of pedestrians, bicyclists and animals that terrorized Phoenix-area residents for 14 months.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Dale Hausner in the next phase of his trial, set to begin March 23.

Authorities said Hausner, 36, killed eight people and attacked 20 others.

They said Hausner, the main suspect in what were dubbed the Serial Shooter attacks, sometimes worked with his brother and former roommate.

Hausner was convicted of 80 of the 86 charges against him, including 18 counts of attempted first-degree murder.
