SOUTH HACKENSACK — The New York man who was found mortally wounded at his Route 46 his chimney cleaning business Sunday evening had been shot multiple times, at least once in the head, a law enforcement official said. But police still are trying to determine whether the attack was a botched robbery attempt or a targeted killing.
Some details of the killing bear striking similarities to the last shooting death in this small town in 1997. That case remains unsolved.
The law enforcement official, who asked not to be identified, said autopsy results might help determine whether Richard Zarriello, 51, of Chestnut Ridge, N.Y., was shot by more than one assailant. Zarriello owned Clean Sweep Chimney Depot at 480 Route
