Kalam, who was described by customers as a kind and generous man, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"He (was a) very hard worker," store owner Alex Kapner said of Kalam. "From day one I trust him with my store."

Kalam was a father of three who moved from Bangladesh 17 years ago. The store is accepting donations for his family.

Kapner said the suspects did not get away with any money.
