Guns Come Out at a Bakery and a Meat Market


Brownstoner hears that three masked men robbed Clinton Hill’s Choice Meat Market at gunpoint last night at closing time. No one was hurt, but the outcome wasn’t as fortunate over in Crown Heights, where the Daily News reports that 68-year-old Mervyn Johnson was shot dead outside of his home after leaving his bakery, Merv’s. And here we were hoping that botch job with the bag of dough had put thugs off this sort of thing. [Brownstoner]
