5 Homeless Found Shot in Long Beach, CA


genericrimescenephoto.jpgIs something bizarre and deadly going on in Southern California? Are the homeless being targeted, somehow?
Earlier in October, we heard about the hideously cruel murder of a homeless man named John McGraham. He was attacked by unknown assailants who doused him with gasoline and set him on fire.
Tonight comes an even deadlier report: 5 people found shot to death in a homeless camp near a freeway ramp in Long Beach.
Police received an anonymous call directing them to the camp around 8:30 a.m. PT. They found 5 adults in an overgrown no-man’s land.
Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office said the dead were “two female adults and three male adults.” Police believe they are definitely looking at a mass murder. [KNX1070.com, CBS2.com]
