Man allegedly shot 5 homeless people in DC and NYC.

Authorities say they have arrested a man on suspicion of fatally shooting five homeless people, leaving two dead. ATF agents arrested the suspect early Tuesday in Washington, DC

Authorities have released surveillance footage and images, which they say depict the man who is said to have shot three people in DC, and two in New York City. Officers did not name him, with DC police only saying he was being interviewed at their murder branch. Police in both cities did not immediately respond to Law & Crime’s request for more information.

The incident dates back to March 3, where someone in DC shot and injured a homeless man in the 1100 block of New York Avenue, Northeast. Then, on March 8, someone shot and wounded a man around the 1700 block of H Street, Northeast. This is about 5 minutes drive to the southeast from first place. Officers in both incidents responded early in the morning.

Things took a turn for the worse on March 9. At about 2:54 a.m., an officer in the 400 block of New York Avenue, Northeast saw a tent fire. First responders put out the fire, but they found a man dead. He was stabbed and shot.

The next shooting occurred north of New York City on Saturday, March 12. Someone shot and wounded a 38-year-old man in the arm while he was sleeping on King Street near St. Varick, in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. Officers said the attack happened around 4:30 a.m

Then, at 5 p.m. that day, officers answered a 911 call of a man who had been shot in the head and neck by a gun. He is presumed dead at the scene. Witnesses said they heard gunshots at 6 a.m

Footage in one incident shows a masked suspect repeatedly poking a sleeping person in a yellow cloth. He looked behind him, as if to see if there were any witnesses, and then he turned around as if to shoot the victim. The video frame is frozen before the next moment.

“Our homeless are among the most vulnerable and an individual praying over them as they sleep is a particularly serious crime,” NYC Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell said on Sunday. “We will use every tool, every technique and every partner to bring the killer to justice.”

“From the first incident, the Metropolitan Police spared no resources in our efforts to identify the suspect behind these cowardly acts,” said DC Metropolitan Police Chief. Robert J. Contee speak. “We are committed to sharing every avenue of investigation, clues and pieces of evidence with our law enforcement partners to bring this investigation to a quick and personal conclusion behind these crimes. this wickedness brought to justice.”
