A heartless crook held up a Manhattan Avenue store for $24 and an iPod — then shot two doves before leaving on March 4.
An employee of Sastreria De San Miguel Tailoring told police that the peace-hating villain entered the shop, at Green Street, at about 2 pm, locked the front door, pointed his gun at the employee’s head and used his other hand to steal the cash and iPod.
The gunman then moved to a cage where two doves were being kept as pets, shot them execution-style, and threatened to kill the worker if he called police. The thief then fled, the blood of the innocents on his hands.
