Homeless people told to leave Gainesville tent city

People living on private property in a section of the Gainesville homeless encampment known as Tent City will have to move by next week.

The decision came just after police arrested a man twice convicted of homicide and released last year from a Florida prison, who they allege stabbed two men at the camp. Both were critically injured.

Fliers were being distributed to people living on privately owned land near the area where the stabbings occurred. The fliers report that the land's owners have asked police to enforce trespass laws on the property. Enforcement will begin Thursday at 9 a.m.
