— Authorities say a New York City boutique owner was shot to death in the head with the same gun that killed two other shopkeepers in the same borough over the summer.

The Daily News reported that the shop owner was behind the counter of She She in the Flatbush section when he was shot Friday night. The News says the gunman dragged his body toward the back of the store and covered it with clothing.

Police have identified the victim as 78-year-old Rahmatollah Vahidipour of Great Neck.

Leon Nwabueze owns the Nanso clothing shop across the street from the victim’s store. He said Vahidipour was quiet and worked hard and closed his store each Saturday to observe the Jewish Sabbath.

No one has been arrested in the three shootings.
