Mohammed Gebeli Killed in Robbery
A friend, concerned to see the lights on in Gebeli's discount mens' store, Valentino Fashion, at 11:30 PM on Friday night, found his body.
That a shopkeeper -- a small-timer with probably $1,000 in his cash drawer -- could be shot dead in a robbery on 5th Avenue has to have sent a collective shiver through Bay Ridge, considered one of the safest neighborhoods in New York City.
That level of violent crime hasn't been seen in this neighborhood for more than a decade.
Gebeli was described by friends and family as a good father and a kind, generous man.
