deaths of next-door neighbors found killed in their Brooklyn apartments

The next-door neighbor of a murdered Brooklyn mom was found shot to death Sunday — and cops are looking into whether the two deaths are linked, police said.
Basil Gray, 54, was discovered shot in the head in a fifth-floor Bushwick Houses apartment on Sunday afternoon, authorities said. The home was one door down from where police found 62-year-old Ana Delvalle murdered Friday night.
A relative found Gray's body and called police.
"My brother is dead," a woman said as police ushered family away from the scene Sunday evening.
Police suspect Gray's death is a homicide, and he may have been killed the same day as Delvalle, cop sources said. The city medical examiner's office will determine how he died.
Delvalle's daughter found her mother's body in her Moore St. apartment just after 6:45 p.m. Friday.

Her hands were bound, and she had been shot several times in the head with a .380-caliber gun, cops said.
Police sources said the crime scene suggested the killing was personal, and the murderer was likely someone Delvalle knew.
Officers found cleaning products outside her door, sources said. One of her sons said Saturday that she was cleaning in the hallway just before her murder.
There was no sign of a forced entry, and the apartment wasn't ransacked.
No one answered a door-knock at the dead neighbor Gray's apartment roughly two hours before police found his body.
