Police Search For Gunman In Deadly Deli Shooting

(NY1.com) – The search is on for the person who shot and killed an 80-year-old deli owner in Brooklyn.

Investigators say Abdulla Yafaee had been fighting with the shooter earlier in the day.

The man allegedly returned later and opened fire inside the 797 Deli Grocery on Stanley Avenue in East New York.

The victim was described as a nice, quiet guy who never had a problem with anyone.

Nearly four years ago there was another murder at the same deli.

55-year-old Hisham Zidan was found by a customer in the basement with blunt force trauma to the head.

A 19-year-old was charged with that murder.
