New York police are searching for a possible serial killer after a third Brooklyn shopkeeper was shot and killed. Here’s ABC News.

 

“All this coming after the murder of a man late last week at his clothing boutique in Brooklyn, before he along with two other shopkeepers who were killed over the summer were all shot with the very same weapon.”

 

Police released this sketch of a man who is being sought for questioning. According to WCBS, the three stores are within a 5-mile radius -- but that’s not the only connection.

 

“All three men are of Middle Eastern descent. All were working alone in stores with no video surveillance, and after each murder, the killer covered the victim's face with merchandise.”

 

Authorities say the killer might also be obsessed with numbers -- the New York Post reports...

 

“All three stores had the number eight in their address — a link that cops are investigating. ‘We’re definitely looking into the number-eight angle … But we’re not any closer to solving the case because of it.’”

 

According to the Post, a $22,000 reward is being offered for any clues in the case.
