A Staten Island salesman accused of killing three Brooklyn shopkeepers pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Wednesday.
The suspect in the murders of three Brooklyn shopkeepers was indicted Tuesday on first-degree murder charges.
At a news conference Wednesday evening, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Perrone was recognized by someone on Bay Ridge and then voluntarily went to the 67th Precinct to be questioned.
Police said the man is not a suspect but they believe he may have some answers in the shooting deaths of three Brooklyn shopkeepers.
The FBI has officially joined the hunt in Brooklyn for the so-called “Numbers Killer,” who is now wanted in the murders of three shopkeepers since July.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the same .22-caliber gun was used in both crimes and he believes it may have been a rifle-type weapon.
The numbers one, seven and eight are linked to both killings. Is it a weird coincidence or something more?
Police told 1010 WINS that they believe that the same suspect who murdered Kadare also killed a Bay Ridge shopkeeper on July 6. The suspect description is similar, and ballistics tests confirm that the same .22-caliber gun was used in both murders.
Late Friday night, a relative told CBS 2 that Kadare may have collected rent in cash from one of his tenants right before the murder and his killer may have known he had the money.
