Alleged shoplifter dies after altercation with employees

Shoplifter dies after scuffle with Brooklyn grocery store employees

Authorities were dispatched to a Stop & Shop after receiving a call about a shoplifter.

The man, who police later identified as Ralph Nimmons, became irate after employees stopped him to question him about allegedly shoplifting around 7:30 a.m., police said.

Police say they have arrested a man who allegedly caused a auto accident that sent himself and seven others to the hospital Friday night.

They received a second 911 call from a staff member at the Flatbush supermarket warning that the victim was fighting with an employee, officials said. By then, he was unresponsive. The man was transported to Kings County Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The man may have been homeless and stole from the store often, a pal told NBC New York.

Police need the public's help finding a man they say fired off gunshots in front of a hookah bar in Gowanus Saturday.

After searching his backpack, police say the suspect also had numerous stolen items, including a hatchet, four folding knives, clothing and food.

The city medical examiner will determine how the victim died.

An arrest made overnight in the shooting death of a man Friday in his Flatlands apartment.
