A suspected serial killer in California was caught while he was “out hunting” for new victims.
Police say they caught a California man who they think killed six people in cold blood while he was “out hunting” for another one.
Police found out that Wesley Brownlee, 43, was the serial killer who shot and killed five people in Stockton and one person in Oakland.
Around 2 a.m. on Saturday, Brownlee was taken into custody. Several of his victims were killed around that time, according to the police.
“We watched his behavior and knew early this morning that he was out to kill,” said Stockton Police Chief Stanley McFadden. “He went on a hunt.”
Between July 8 and September 27, five people were killed in Stockton. On September 30, the police said they were searching for a serial killer. After that, police got a lot of information about possible leads.
Investigators also linked Brownlee to a fatal shooting that happened in April 2021, about 60 miles to the west in Oakland. During the same month, he is also accused of trying to kill a woman in Stockton.
None of the victims were beaten or robbed, and the woman who lived said that the man who tried to kill her didn’t even talk.
