SAN DIEGO — Homicide investigators will update their effort to identify and arrest the man responsible for a series of brutal attacks on homeless men that have killed two men and left two others gravely injured.

Fox5sandiego.com will carry the new conference live beginning at 10 a.m.

On Wednesday, San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman told reporters that the series of early-morning attacks against the homeless — all believed to have been carried out by the same man — was her officers’ highest priority.

“These evil acts of violence are some of the worst that I have seen in my 34 years in law enforcement,” Zimmerman said. “This killer has targeted some of our city’s most vulnerable citizens while they are asleep.”
