Altin Avdyli had just closed his restaurant for the night when he was gunned down. Police say he was shot in the head around 10pm Friday. A neighbor made the gruesome discovery. Avdyli's body was left in an alley. A man who did not want to be identified tells Fox 2 he worked at the restaurant. He says Avdyli came here from Albania seeking the American dream. A Royal Grill customer tells us there was a heated confrontation there recently and he overheard someone shouting, "I'm the boss."

It's not clear whether the argument had anything to do with the shooting. You can help investigators by keeping an eye out for the stolen car. It's a gray, 2010 Chevy Camaro with black racing stripes. License plate number" CFZ 9555. Anyone with information can call CrimStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.
