Los Angeles authorities are asking for the public's help in finding the person who has allegedly killed at least three homeless people in different parts of the city. Temporary winter shelters have been set up amid the killings so unhoused individuals can sleep in a safe place.
The Los Angeles Police Department, Mayor Karen Bass, District Attorney George Gascón and federal officials gathered Friday afternoon to discuss the crimes for the first time.
From Nov. 26 through Nov. 29, three men have been found dead, all under similar circumstances, according to LAPD Chief Michel Moore. "A single individual approached each one and shot and killed each one as they slept," Moore said. Each of the three killings happened in the early morning, all before 5 a.m.
