Man accused of stalking and killing homeless people in DC, NYC to be arraigned in court on Friday

Gerald Brevard, the man charged with stalking and shooting the homeless who slept on the streets of Washington, DC and New York City earlier this year, will appear in court on Friday.

Brevard was arrested in the country’s capital in March 2022 after the attacks left several injured and at least one person dead. He faces 17 charges including murder, assault and multiple firearms offenses for the attacks that took place in D.C.

Authorities say that between March 3 and March 9 this year, 31-year-old Brevard assaulted three men in the district. Two of the men were shot and wounded. The third man, 54-year-old Morgan Holmes, died after officials said Brevard shot and stabbed him before setting fire to his tent.

The grand jury indictment alleges the murder and attacks were prejudice-related hate crimes. Brevard was taken into custody on March 15 following a joint investigation between the DC Police Department, the New York City Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
