New York, July 26(ANI): A 39-year-old Pakistani gas station attendant in New York was killed on Sunday when he was shot five times by two hooded men, the New York Police Department said.

The surveillance camera footage showed that the men, who entered the station at 1.40 a.m, calmly walked to the side of the cashier’s booth and pumped multiple shots into Nadeem Khan’s chest, killing him.

“They just walked in and shot him,” The New York Daily News quoted Balvinder Singh, Queens gas station manager, as saying.

Investigators believe that Khan, who immigrated to the U.S. 10 months ago, may have been slain over a dispute with local thugs.

However, Khan’s brother Wasim Rashid said that he did not know if his brother was involved in any feud.

“He was the kind of person who laughed first. He wasn’t an aggressive guy,” Rashid said.

Less than 30 minutes after Khan was killed, a teenage factory worker was shot to death on a Brooklyn street corner. Another man was shot multiple times at 681 Courtlandt Ave.

There were no arrests in any of the killings. (ANI)
