Sources say the 26-year-old victim was waiting at the store on East Gun Hill Road in Williamsbridge around 1:30 p.m. Friday when he got into a minor dispute with a woman. It is unclear what the dispute was about.
The woman then left the store and returned with her boyfriend, who shot and killed the victim on Holland Avenue – how they ended up at the location is unclear.
Residents say violence in the area is not uncommon.
“Soon as it gets dark, I don’t go out,” said Thomas Wood.
The victim has been identified as Stephen Stuart.
No arrests have been made.
