NYC gas station worker shooting may be random, gunman said nothing: sources


The suspect wanted for shooting a gas station employee in the Bronx didn’t say a word before he fired at the longtime worker — in what appears to be a random attack, police sources said Wednesday.

The 49-year-old Sunoco employee was inside the attached store on Boston Road near Astor Avenue in Allerton around 7 p.m. Tuesday when a stranger walked up to the door and motioned as if he wanted gas, his co-workers told police, according to the sources.

When the employee opened the door, the suspect said nothing as he fired twice at him in an apparently random act, the sources said. 

The worker was struck in the head and taken to Jacobi Medical Center. Cops on Wednesday said the victim had suffered a graze wound and described his injuries as non-life-threatening. 

Co-workers say they don't believe the long-time worker had previous disputes with anyone. Source link
