The mayors of New York City and Washington, D.C., are offering a $70,000 reward in connection to deadly shootings involving people experiencing homelessness between the two cities.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the news in a rare joint press conference on Monday.

Police are jointly investigating the shootings of five homeless people across both cities that they said may have been committed by the same suspect.

Because of similarities in "the modus operandi of the perpetrator, common circumstances involved in each shooting, circumstances of the victims and recovered evidence," both police departments in New York City and Washington D.C., will jointly investigate the shootings with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, they said in a Sunday news release.


I'm sure the good guy with the gun is doing these cities a service by eliminating homeless people by shooting them.

Goodness. With better tracking data we would have this SOB locked up by now.

With better policing we would have this guy locked up too. What's your point?

I agree. And the police need better tools to track where these guns are and who is buying them

#Stopgunviolence.
have they recovered the firearm? It appears someone is arrested. what do you think the authorities need to get a conviction, Bucky?

AFTER he killed at least two men and injured three more

Locking the stable door, after the horse has bolted

Your favorite response.
yes, we know, you want to strip millions of constitutional rights (and not get thousands killed doing that) in order to PRETEND you will stop murder.

No just ONE constitutional right (you continue with your dishonest straw-man), and it won't get "thousands" killed. It will save thousands from death/injury.

And no it won't stop murder, it will however greatly reduce the casualties caused by mass shootings.

lots of people will not give up their guns. I have asked you before-are you willing to risk your life trying to confiscate others guns? and why are gun bans going to stop among the most premeditated crimes one can do with a gun

IYO, despite having no evidence for this.

Are you willing to risk your life as part of a police SWAT team trying to confiscate drugs or shut down a trafficking operation ?

no-I don't support the war on drugs. I am not paid, nor do I do it for free-advocating the war against drugs

Except Rich doesn’t care if thousands of people die if their guns are taken away. It actually supports his agenda.

So, you prefer to allow illegal activity continue, or do you prefer to see heroin, meth, cocaine etc legalized ?
Lots of cops get killed every year, yet you chose to work behind a desk and not on the streets. Was police work too dangerous/arduous for you ?

What about the war on terrorism, would you volunteer to fight in places like Iraq and the recently concluded war in Afghanistan ?

This isn't a mass shooting case. This is a serial killer taking out particular people.
