Police believe three robbers confronted a shop owner in Brooklyn's Wingate neighborhood and the situation ended with two of the robbers dead. The Daily News reports that Youssouf Brame managed to fire at the armed robbers, leaving "one bandit...dead" and "another [running] from the store bleeding from a fatal chest wound" (a third suspect escaped). Brame was shot in the stomach, and it's unclear who may have fired first. Brame's store, at 1051 Nostrand Avenue and Lefferts, is described as a variety-store, and a neighbor told the NY Times that Brame "would always talk with everybody, he was so friendly." Brame underwent surgery and is in critical but stable condition.
