ATLANTA — The owner of an Atlanta grocery store is dead and another man is in critical condition after a fatal shooting outside the store.
News outlets report 36-year-old Saiful Islam Bhuyia and 20-year-old Rizanul Islam were shot in the head while inside their car outside Southern Grocery in southwest Atlanta on Sunday night. Bhuyia was found dead at the scene, while Islam remains at Grady Memorial Hospital.
Atlanta police released surveillance footage showing two armed suspects getting out of a car and opening fire on Bhuyia’s car as he tried to drive off. Police say nothing was taken from the store.
The business’ previous owner, Baik Sung, was fatally stabbed outside the store in 2010. Atlanta City Councilmember Cleta Winslow says she would support a plan to permanently close the business.
