[VIDEO] Suspected Serial Killer Taken Into Custody After Murders And Attempted Murders In NYC And DC


A suspected serial killer has been captured after a manhunt was underway, and tips from the public are what brought police to his location. The suspect is accused of shooting at least 5 homeless people in New York City and Washington D.C., two of them fatally.

Tips came in from the public, including the suspect’s name, which is 30-year-old Gerald Brevard III. Brevard is said to have a history of mental illness and violence.

Police say Brevard shot his victims as they slept on the street, with at least one being stabbed as well. The attacks were labeled as cold-blooded and vicious, and police worked quickly to bring the suspect into custody before he could commit anymore attacks.

The suspect was located at a gas station and quickly taken into custody. Police noted that he had no weapons on him at the time, and his appearance and clothing matched photos and videos collected as evidence during their search.

Surveillance video of the takedown was shared with the public on Tuesday, showing the quick response by police and how easily the suspect gave up after understanding he wasn’t going to get away.
