In New York, the interior and surroundings of warehouses are frequently crime scenes, both robberies and homicides.
In early July, a Dominican employee was arrested for killing an intruder during a confrontation at a Harlem bodega. days later it was exonerated of all charges, in the midst of a controversy in which even the mayor of New York, Eric Adams, supported him by saying that he was a worker who had acted in self-defense. The case also served to revive complaints about the growing insecurity in New York stores and warehouses.
In a similar case, a month ago a man was beaten and stabbed by his own companions at a gas station in The Bronx (NYC) in broad daylight, in the middle of an argument when paying.
