Two victims who survived attacks from a Phoenix serial murderer have been helping police get closer to catching the killer, who is believed to be responsible for a total of seven deaths, including the loss of a 12-year-old girl.

Commonalities discovered in the killings first helped investigators with case developments, as all victims were shot inside or near their cars in residential neighbors at night.

Six of the victims were gunned down within a four-mile radius in Maryvale, Arizona.

Thanks to the surviving victims, police have released a sketch of the killer, still at large, in hopes of hunting him down.

The shootings began five months ago, when a 16-year-old teenager was injured while walking down the street at 11:30 p.m.

Just two days later, a 21-year-old man was shot standing next to his car. Both survived their injuries.

But since then, other victims have not been as lucky, including 12-year-old Maleah Ellis who was listening to music in a car with her mother, Stefanie Ellis, 33, and her mother's friend, Angela Linner, 31.

A reward for information leading to an arrest has been raised to $30,000.
