Police search for suspect in fatal Flatbush shooting

FLATBUSH - Police are searching for a suspect who they believe shot and killed store owners in Flatbush, Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst.

The latest fatal shooting occurred Friday evening at the She She Boutique, located at 834 Flatbush Ave. Police say 78-year-old Rahmatollah Vahidipour was shot in the head and torso three times.

Neighbor's say Vahidipour owned the store for the past 20 years.

Investigators say the same gun that was used in Friday's shooting was also used in Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst fatal shootings over the summer. Police believe the suspect may choose a specific number pattern for the addresses he chooses to strike.

Police say all three men were shot in the head or neck. The other fatal shootings also occurred at addresses that contained the numbers 7, 1 and 8.

No arrests have been made, and police say their investigation is ongoing.
