Salvatore Perrone of Staten Island was recently arrested as a suspect in the brutal murders of three Brooklyn shopkeepers. Before Perrone’s arrest, NYPD released to media the following sketch of the “black latino” suspect, which was distributed widely in New York. Update: the sketch depicts a separate person of interest from Salvatore Perrone, but the sketch was widely used by media in association with the murders prior to Wednesday’s arrest, and has been called out on tumblr as appearing to be a “stock negro criminal” drawing.
