Update from the 68th Precinct Community Council

Captain DiBlasio has asked that we distribute the attached sketch of an individual wanted in connection with the recent deaths of Mohammed Gebeli, a merchant owner from 5th Avenue in the 68 precinct, and Isaac Kadare, a merchant owner from 86 street in the 62 precinct. The ballistic evidence recovered from both crime scenes match.

Captain DiBlasio would also like to let you know that there will be an increased presence of police officers in the 68 precinct from different commands.
