GREAT NECK - A Great Neck man was found shot to death in his Brooklyn store Friday evening.

Neighbors say Rahmatollah Vahidipour owned the She She clothing boutique on Flatbush Avenue for the past 20 years. The 78-year-old father of three emigrated to the United State from Iran.

Investigators say the same gun that was used in Friday's shooting was also used in two south Brooklyn fatal store 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.

Anyone with information is asked to call New York City CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
