New York City has a major crime issue, caused in part by policies of the previous Mayor Bill DeBlasio and Soros-funded prosecutor Alvin Bragg. Now the Big Apple has suffered another bruise, this time caused by a psychotic murderer who ambushes the homeless by shooting them as they sleep.
NYPD has released video of the latest incident in the hopes the public might help identify the killer.
The New York Post has the story . . .
Police are hunting for a suspected serial shooter who has opened fire on two homeless people in Soho Saturday, killing one of them, sources said.
One of the chillingly “cold-blooded” shootings was caught on camera, and city leaders urged the community to come together and help find the detached killer.
“Homelessness turning into a homicide. We need to find this person and we need New Yorkers to help us,” Mayor Eric Adams said at a Saturday night press conference.
The sinister spree began at 5 a.m., when a sleeping 38-year-old man was shot in front of 54 King St. by the unknown assailant, police said…
That victim was expected to survive his injuries, according to police.
About an hour later the shooter casually approached a man braving frigid temperatures and a winter storm in a green sleeping bag in front of 148 Lafayette Street, according to police surveillance video.
The suspect kicked the sleeping man, looked around to see if anyone was watching, then pulled out a gun and shot him at point-blank range in the head, the disturbing footage showed.
The victim died, and the hooded killer, wearing all black with blue gloves, fled the scene, police said.

Between soft-on-crime political leaders and COVID masks becoming the norm, New York City has become a criminal’s paradise. In fact, some say it’s become unlivable.
