Los Angeles police have identified Jerrid Joseph Powell, 33, as a suspect in the killings of three homeless men, as well as a county employee.

Powell was arrested after being connected to the killing of a San Dimas man.

The handgun found in Powell’s car matches the weapon used in the killings.

The killings occurred in the early hours of Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday, with all three victims being men who were asleep in open areas.

A motive has not been established.

“The next objective is to put this guy away at minimum forever, because he doesn’t deserve to be out on the street,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said.

“Our message to the unhoused community is clear: Do not sleep alone tonight. Seek shelter, seek services, stay together,” said Mayor Karen Bass.

“He was a prolific developer who had recently completed an innovative IT system to process our county’s budget process,” the county Board of Supervisors’ Kathyrn Barger, stated.

“His coworkers describe him as kind, gentle and hardworking person.”

“We want to make sure that anybody who may have been a victim of this individual that they come forward and notify your own police department,” Luna said.

Los Angeles officials have urged homeless people not to sleep alone and are opening emergency shelters.

Powell was jailed in the death of Nicholas Simbolon, a county employee.

Officials are asking anyone with information about Powell to come forward.
