Los Angeles police are searching for a man suspected of walking up to three unhoused people this week while they slept during the early hours of the morning and shooting them to death.

The first shooting happened on Sunday in Southeast L.A. at approximately 3 AM “in an alley in the rear of 836 West 110th Street,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore explained during a Friday afternoon press conference with L.A. Mayor Karen Bass, District Attorney George Gascón, and U.S. Attorney General E. Martin Estrada.

The victim was a 37-year-old man.

A 62-year-old man was fatally shot one day later, on Monday morning at approximately 4:55 AM, on the 800 block of East 7th Street in Skid Row.

Then, on Wednesday, at 2:30 in the morning, near the intersection of South Avenue 18 and Pasadena Avenue in Lincoln Heights, a 52-year-old man was murdered in the same manner, according to Chief Moore. Each of the killings occurred in “open areas” and involved victims who were “alone” and asleep, Chief Moore said. “Physical as well as video evidence” has been gathered by investigators so far.
