Default Mestizo in the US illegally shot limo driver, prosecutors say

A man in the U.S. illegally -- with a string of shootings to his name -- was arrested in a weekend shooting that wounded a limousine driver in west Phoenix, prosecutors said.

Zhair Zamora-Sepulveda, 29, and his girlfriend hired a limo for the night Saturday. Zamora-Sepulveda balked at paying the driver for services that went beyond the original contract, police said.

Once they arrived at the home of Zamora-Sepulveda’s girlfriend early Sunday, the man then went into the house and came out with a handgun, police said. He allegedly fired numerous rounds, hitting the 43-year-old driver twice in the legs.*

"The suspect fired multiple rounds in a downward direction toward the victim," Sgt. Alan Pfohl with Phoenix police told*AZ Family.

Zamora-Sepulveda still had the gun in his hands when officers arrived, police said.*

Zamora-Sepulveda "is a previously deported felon and illegally in the United States," according to a probable cause statement obtained by*KTVK. *He was deported and was given probation following a 2009 misconduct with weapons charge,*AZ Central*reported.*

He also admitted that he shot someone in the stomach in February 2013, court documents showed without providing further details.

Zamora-Sepulveda is currently jailed on $100,000 bond on suspicion of aggravated assault and misconduct involving weapons, Phoenix police said.
He didn't have an attorney at his initial court appearance Monday.
