How do I create an outline numbered list as a paragraph style in InDesign?

I want one paragraph style to form this result, but I would like the
numerals to align on the period and not number/letter, so the text always
starts in the same place.
1. This is sentence one.
2. This is sentence two.
A. This is sentence 2A.
i. Blah blah
ii. Blah blah
iii. Blah blah
B. This is sentence 2B.
i. Blah blah
ii. Blah blah
C. This is sentence 2C
i. Blah blah
ii. Blah blah
3. This is sentence 3.
