Phoenix police: Saturday shooting may be linked to 'Serial Shooter'


The Associated Press

Phoenix- A task force investigating a series of gun attacks in the Phoenix area is taking a close look at one that happened Saturday.

Phoenix police spokesman Andy Hill says the shooting in Mesa hasn't been forensically linked to the "Serial Shooter" cases, but there are similarities.

Mesa police say a man in his mid-30s on his way to work was shot while riding his bike Saturday morning. He's expected to survive.

There has been a string of attacks in and around Phoenix in which five people have been killed and 17 wounded.
