NEW YORK (PIX11)—
Police spent the weekend warning shop owners in several Brooklyn neighborhoods that there is a killer on the loose.
Officers also believe he may be targeting stores with addresses that include the numbers 1,7 and 8.
Police have released a sketch showing a 5'9 Hispanic man in his 20's with sunglasses. Detectives say he is likely the same killer in Thursday's shooting and the killing from last month of another store owner just a mile away. The same type of bullets were found in both locations.
Now, wanted posters are up in Bensonhurst
, Bay Ridge
, Sunset Park
and Borough Park
asking shop owners to be careful around closing time, and offering a $12,000 reward to people for information about the killer.
Detectives think the killer could be motivated by ethnic hatred.
