The assailants last known attack was early Saturday morning, when he shot a man sleeping in a doorway in SoHo in Manhattan in the head, killing him, the police said. The police are investigating whether another homeless man who was found dead on Sunday may have been killed by the same man.

Images of perpetrator at link. I consider this news of national interest because the attacks take place in two cities, DC and NYC.
People forget, or just don't want to be reminded: the homeless are much more likely to be the victims of crime, rather than the perpetrators.
I hope they get this guy.
That was a rhetorical question - I have a PhD in Social Psychology so I probably write you a whole paper on the societal and individual variables which might contribute to this type of attack!
The suspect was arrested in Washington and being interviewed by police, the Metropolitan police department tweeted.
Officers in the two cities had released multiple surveillance photographs, including a close-up clearly showing the mans face, and urged people who might know him to come forward. Additional information will be forthcoming the department tweeted. Thanks to the community for all your tips.
