Authorities here in Phoenix have linked two more crimes to accused “Serial Shooter” Dale Hausner.

Hausner and his alleged accomplice, Samuel Dieteman, are accused of committing a string of late-night shootings that took seven lives and rattled the Valley for months.

This is the third time Hausner has been indicted in connection with the case. The pair were indicted in August for 46 crimes, which included two deaths. In November, they were indicted on more charges, which included linking Hausner to five other homicides.

Maricopa county Attorney Andrew Thomas has said he plans to seek death for Hausner and Dieteman.

On Wednesday, The grand jury indicted Hausner for two counts of discharging a firearm in connection with the December 2005 Tempe shooting.

There were no injuries, but Hausner fired six shots at a woman’s car in Dec. of 2005.

The cars owner a 32-year-old woman, was inside one of the buildings where she was attending a training program, police report. Several people, heard several pops but didn’t realize it was a shooting until later.

The windshield of the 2002 Chevy Cavalier sustained $500 in damages, police said. Hausner was believed to be retaliating on behalf of a friend who had a dispute with cars owner, according to the county attorney’s office.

Exactly 11 months later, Phoenix police contacted Tempe police saying an informant led them to believe the shooting could be connected, Tempe police said.

Tempe’s ballistics revealed the car shooter used a .22 caliber gun, the same caliber found in Hausner’s car that matched the bullets that killed five people, authorities said.

The Tempe incident happened the same day as two murders in the downtown Phoenix which police have linked to the Serial Shooter case.

“These new charges are the result of continued determination on the part of law enforcement to hold this defendant accountable for all of his alleged crimes,” Thomas said in a statement. “All of these charges are serious and will be fully prosecuted.”
