The father of two Parkland shooting survivors was reportedly shot and killed during a robbery at his convenience store this week.
An NBC affiliate in Miami reported that Ayub Ali, whose son and daughter survived the mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, died on Tuesday night. The news outlet notes that Ali, 61, was a father of four.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office told NBC that Ali was fatally shot at his North Lauderdale convenience store. The network reported that Lauderdale Lakes BSO deputies and Tamarac Fire Rescue paramedics discovered a wounded Ali when they arrived at Aunt Molly’s Food Store.
He was later transported to Fort Lauderdale’s Broward Health Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Just a reminder that gun violence is pervasive in our society.
Especially in Florida.
