A man suspected of killing two homeless people and shooting three others was arrested on Tuesday morning, police said in the US capital.

The first assault was perpetrated on March 3 in Washington.

The alleged perpetrator of five attacks on homeless people in Washington and New York was arrested on Tuesday morning. The suspect “is currently being questioned,” law enforcement said in a tweet. A hunt had been initiated to find the author of these attacks, perpetrated “in cold blood” and “with the same modus operandi” against men who had been sleeping in the street since the beginning of March, according to the authorities.

“A ruthless killer is on the loose, but we will arrest him and put him in jail,” New York Mayor Eric Adams and Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a joint statement. The many images of the suspect, taken from CCTV cameras, showed a bearded, thin and rather young man with a shaved head.

The first two attacks took place on March 3 and 8 in the northeast of the American capital. The victims, who were shot, survived. Wednesday 9, always in Washington, the helps had intervened because the tent of a SDF was on fire. Inside they had found the body of a deceased man. The autopsy showed that he had succumbed to multiple gunshots and stab wounds.

According to investigators, the killer then traveled to New York, about 400 km to the north. Early Saturday morning, a 38-year-old man was found shot but alive in lower Manhattan. At the end of the afternoon, the police had found another man in the same neighborhood, this time dead, with head and neck injuries. It was by seeing images of this murder, taken from video surveillance, that a Washington police investigator had made the link between the two series of attacks.
