On March 8, the police discovered another homeless person who had been shot by a gun. He was also taken to a hospital.
The next day, police saw a tent on fire and found a dead man inside. After an analysis, it was determined that he had been the victim of a gunshot wound and an attack with a sharp object such as a knife.
Three days later, a 38-year-old man was shot in the arm in New York City.
A short time later, near the spot where this man was shot, police found another, dead, who had been shot in the head and neck. He was inside a sleeping bag.
