NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A man has been charged with murder in the deadly shooting of a man inside a Brooklyn deli earlier this week.
Mark Thomas, 41, of Brooklyn, was arrested and charged Thursday.
Police say 80-year-old clerk Abdulla Yafaee was killed over a 50-cent dispute Tuesday night. One witness said the suspect was trying to buy a $2 beer, but only had $1.50.
Police said Thomas left, then came back and shot Yafaee in the chest.
