Yonkers, New York Store Owner Fatally Stabbed By Shoplifter
Shubrick confessed to fatally stabbing 47-year-old Yonkers resident Ruben Martinez Campos.
“Today, we have ensured a violent individual, who ruthlessly took the life of a man trying to protect his business and livelihood, is off our streets. Our thoughts are with Mr. Campos’s family and the Yonkers community," DA Rocah said.
Campo owned a store on Main Street in Yonkers. Officials didn't release what store he owned.
On April 20, 2021, at approximately 5:40 p.m., Campos confronted Shubrick after Campos spotted him stealing a hat from the store.
Shubrick stabbed Campos in the chest twice outside of the store after Campos confronted Shubrick about the stolen hat.
Campos was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, where he died from his injuries.
The victim's wife witnessed the incident, which was also captured on surveillance video.
In a statement read in court, Mr. Campos’s wife said: “You senselessly took my love’s life without any reason in front of me.... This has been a nightmare from which I have not been able to wake up from.... He didn’t deserve what you did to him.”
