NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD released a new image of the gunman who they say killed a Brooklyn woman and her dog over the weekend inside a bodega.
Police sources tell CBS2 that the victim was not the intended target, but rather an innocent spectator. Investigators believe the suspect may have been aiming for another man inside the store.

CBS2’s Alice Gainer spoke with her boyfriend, who said the mother of three could not have been the intended target.
“She has no enemies. She should walk the dog and go to the store, probably get something to drink or something,” Carlton Busch said.
He said he talked to her just before she left.
“Maybe we’ll see each other later … nothing,” Busch added.
