Description: <p>Police are hunting for a suspected serial shooter who has opened fire on two homeless people in Soho Saturday, killing one of them, sources said.</p>

<p>One of the chillingly “cold-blooded” shootings was caught on camera, and city leaders urged the community to come together and help find the detached killer.</p>

<p>“Homelessness turning into a homicide. We need to find this person and we need New Yorkers to help us,” Mayor Eric Adams said at a Saturday night press conference.</p>

<p>The sinister spree began at 5 a.m., when a sleeping 38-year-old man was shot in front of 54 King St. by the unknown assailant, police said. </p>

<p>“The victim woke up … screaming: ‘What are you doing?,’” NYPD Deputy Chief Hank Saunter said.</p>

<p>That victim was expected to survive his injuries, according to police.</p>

<p>About an hour later the shooter casually approached a man braving frigid temperatures and a winter storm in a green sleeping bag in front of 148 Lafayette Street, according to police surveillance video.</p>

<p>The suspect kicked the sleeping man, looked around to see if anyone was watching, then pulled out a gun and shot him at point-blank range in the head, the disturbing footage showed.</p>

<p>The victim died, and the hooded killer, wearing all black with blue gloves, fled the scene, police said.</p>

<p>His bullet-riddled body was found still in his sleeping bag 12 hours later, they said.</p>

<p>“I believe [that’s what] makes this case so horrific, watching the video, watching the individual intentionally walk up to innocent people that are dealing with the challenges of homelessness – and it’s quite possible that one of our citizens is still alive merely because he woke up,” Adams said.</p>

<p>“And I’m here today to send a very clear message, that all New Yorkers matter.”</p>

<p>Police were said to be canvassing the fashionable Manhattan neighborhood to see if any other people without homes were targeted by the deranged killer.</p>

<p>“I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more, and we don’t know yet,” one investigator said.</p>
