Three men : “Serial killer arrested in connection with fatal shootings in Los Angeles”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Suspect Arrested in Connection with Serial Killings of Homeless Men in Los Angeles

Los Angeles police have announced that they have linked four fatal shootings, including the unprovoked killings of three homeless men, to one suspect. The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Jerrid Joseph Powell, was apprehended on Saturday and is believed to be responsible for the murders of the three unhoused individuals, who were shot while sleeping on sidewalks or in alleys.

Prior to his arrest, Powell was already in custody for another homicide that occurred in Los Angeles earlier in the week, which involved a home robbery. The serial killings took place over a four-day period, from Sunday to Wednesday, and the suspect was taken into custody on Thursday in connection with the robbery.

Authorities had announced on Friday that they were actively seeking a potential serial killer in the shootings of the homeless men. However, within 24 hours, Powell was apprehended, bringing relief to the community. Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass expressed her gratitude at a press briefing, stating, “Twenty-four hours ago we announced there was a killer on the loose. Now he is in custody.”

According to Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore, Powell’s vehicle was present at all three homicide scenes involving the homeless men. Additionally, a handgun recovered from the vehicle was positively identified as the murder weapon. Both the vehicle and the handgun have also been linked to the home robbery shooting.

The arrest of Powell brings some closure to the families of the victims and the community at large, but investigations are still ongoing. Authorities are urging anyone with additional information to come forward, as they continue to gather evidence and build their case against the suspect.

As this is a developing story, updates will be provided as more information becomes available. The swift action taken by law enforcement in apprehending the suspect has brought a sense of relief and justice to the residents of Los Angeles, who can now rest a little easier knowing that a dangerous individual is no longer on the streets.
