Salvatore Perrone, also known as “Son of Sal,” has been deemed mentally fit to stand trial, according to his court-appointed attorney William Martin.

Perrone, 64, is accused of killing three Brooklyn shopkeepers between July and November, 2012.

His next court appearance was this morning in Brooklyn Supreme Court.

The Bensonhurst native, who currently lives on Staten Island, was a clothing salesman and it is believed that he knew the victims. His first alleged victim was Mohamed Gebeli, who was shot in the neck in his store, Valentino’s Fashion, in Bay Ridge on July 6. Isaac Kadare was shot in his shop, Amazing 99 Cent Deals and Up, in Bensonhurst, on August 2.  The final victim, Rahmatollah Vahidipour, was gunned down in his Flatbush business, She She Boutique, on November 16.
All men had family-owned and operated businesses, and were shot just before closing time, with the same .22 caliber gun.
