This was found by someone at Free Republic, documented at Pajamas Media. Project Gunrunner was funded 10 million taxpayer dollars in the Stimulus that Obama signed himself:
For an additional amount for ‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.

Now the same arms are turning back up here and there’s no telling how many deaths will be directly connected to it.
In fact here’s a piece by ABC 15 documenting that the guns are showing up in Phoenix:
