Man sought in homeless killings in New York, Washington D.C.

NEW YORK (AP) — A search is underway for a gunman who has been stalking and shooting homeless men sleeping on the streets of Washington, D.C., and New York City. Police released surveillance photographs of the gunman, who authorities say killed two people and wounded three more in less than two weeks.

The killer’s motive — if any — was unknown.

New York Mayor Eric Adams said Monday police officers and homeless outreach teams would focus on finding unhoused people in the subways and other locations and would urge them to seek refuge at city-owned shelters.
