2 fatal shootings in Bronx delis lead to calls for added safety measures

There are calls to increase protections for bodega workers in New York City after the second fatal shooting of a clerk in just four days, both in the Bronx.

Mohammed Qutaish, 20, was gunned down just before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at Deli Grocery on White Plains Road and East 216th Street in Williamsbridge following a dispute with a female customer who was trying to buy individual cigarettes.

The shooting came on the heels of another murder inside the B & A Gourmet Deli at East 137th and Brook Avenue in Mott Haven Friday evening.

Police say the gunman walked into the store and opened fire without saying a word, killing Yehya Almunster, who recently became a U.S. citizen and was expecting a child with his wife.
