An alleged serial killer accused of opening fire randomly on motorists in a Los Angeles suburb has been charged, prosecutors said. Alexander Hernandez, 34, is accused of murdering a 48-year-old man driving his pick-up truck last Thursday, and with attempted murder for firing on a couple in west Hollywood last Friday. Charges are also expected in four other shootings which ended when Hernandez was arrested on Sunday. "Nothing makes a homicide investigator's heart beat faster than realizing he has a serial killer," said Bill McSweeney of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department after announcing the charges Tuesday.
