New York murder suspect allegedly sought revenge for Sept. 11

For nearly three weeks, a special police task force hunted for a killer who was calmly shooting immigrants at work in Brooklyn and Queens.

Larme Price, 30, of Brooklyn, walked into a Brooklyn police precinct Friday and offered to help track down the suspect, police said. Within a day, police said, they obtained Price’s confession and his stated motivation: exacting revenge for the Sept. 11 attacks. Price told authorities he was targeting people of Middle Eastern descent when he shot immigrants from Guyana, India, Russia and Yemen in convenience stores and an all-night laundry over the past two months, police said. Price described the Guyanese, Indian and Yemeni-born victims as “Arabs” in lengthy interviews after his arrest Saturday, an investigator said. He may have shot Russian-born laundry manager Albert Kotlyar because he believed Kotlyar “disrespected” him by asking him to leave the business on March 10, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
