Group of Men Sought for Setting Fire to Bag of Dogs

Yes, a bag of dogs.

Workers at a beverage distribution warehouse on East 91st Street in Canarsie made the grisly discovery early Saturday morning, finding what looked like an adult pit bull and three puppies inside the burnt garbage bag….

Brooklyn Serial Killer CAUGHT

In the most recent killing, Rahmatollah Vahidipour, an Iranian, was shot three times in the head and chest at his store, the She She Boutique.

After that killing, detectives discovered the same gun was used in the fatal shootings of two other shopkeepers when ballistics matched the .22-caliber gun shell casings on all three. On July 6, Mohamed Gebeli, an Egyptian, was found shot in the back of his shop, Valentino Fashion Inc. On Aug. 6, Isaac Kadare, also Egyptian, was shot in the head in his store, Amazing 99 Cent Deal.

There were other similarities in the deaths, authorities said: The bodies were all partially obscured, by clothing or, in one case, a box. The locations of the shops form an equilateral triangle and are about 4 miles apart, with addresses that contain the number eight.
