MARINE PARK - A robbery turned fatal Sunday for a Marine Park deli clerk who struggled with his attackers.

Police say three men walked into Ave. R Mini-mart and Deli at 2924 Avenue R around 9:15 p.m. and demanded money. According to authorities, 44-year-old Ahmed Shuaibi got into a fight with the robbers who then shot the clerk and struck him. Shuaibi later died at Coney Island Hospital.

Investigators say the robbery is similar to a string of recent robberies at Brooklyn stores, but they believe this is the first one to turn fatal. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
