New York City boutique owner is third killed with same gun
NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City boutique owner was fatally shot in the head with the same gun that killed two other shopkeepers over the summer.
The shop owner was behind the counter of She She in Brooklyn's Flatbush section when he was shot Friday night, The Daily News reported. The gunman dragged the owner's body toward the back of the store and covered it with clothing, the newspaper reported.
Police have identified the victim as 78-year-old Rahmatollah Vahidipour of Great Neck on Long Island. He suffered gunshot wounds to the head and torso, police said.
"He was quiet and worked hard," said Mr Leon Nwabueze, who owns the Nanso clothing shop across the street from the victim's store.
