For the first time, FOX 10 is hearing the frightening story from a survivor of the Phoenix Serial Street Shooter.
 
Phoenix Police say the shooter has killed seven people but this victim was not hurt despite being fired upon at close range.
 
Monday, police released the report that details what happened to the victim back in mid-July.
 
He was driving with his 4-year-old nephew when the shooter pulled up and just opened fire. 
 
Out of fear of retaliation he did not want FOX 10 to reveal his identity.
 
The suspect has been described as a light-skinned Hispanic man, possibly in his early twenties. That description came from the 22-year-old who survived the July 11 attack.
 
"I firmly believe that it was God deliverance, that the Lord Jesus saved me from the snare of death."
 
According to the report released on Monday, the day of the July 11 shooting, the victim was driving south on 30th Street near Thomas when the shooter pulled up next to him. The victim saw a Hispanic male in his twenties who gave the victim a threatening look.
 
"When we made eye contact he looked directly at me."
 
"He wanted to make it obvious, like I am looking at you right now. Like this is me and you right now."
 
Within seconds the shooter fired 3 shots.
 
"I immediately ducked down. I reached for my nephew and my only thought was to get away from the guy."
 
The victim and his nephew survived but the police say the serial shooter is responsible for seven deaths in nine shootings dating back to mid March.
 
"I would just be interested in knowing why."
 
The victim says the shooter was driving a black BMW from the 1990's. That is the description that has now been widely circulated by the police.
 
Anyone who can help should call Silent Witness. The reward is $50,000.
