A New Jersey man was busted in connection to the fatal shooting of a bodega worker during a botched robbery in Brooklyn earlier this month, cops said Wednesday.
Ricardo Senatus, 28, of Newark, was arrested Tuesday and charged with murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
Senatus allegedly walked into a deli at 703 Flatbush Ave. on Dec. 14 and demanded money from Fadhl Moosa, who was working behind the counter, according to police.
Moosa refused and Senatus fatally shot the worker in the head during a struggle, cops allege.
The 20-year-old deli worker was found by cops lying face down in a pool of blood behind the counter. He died at the scene.
Senatus was a regular at the deli and had come in earlier that day to order an egg sandwich.
Cops charged the accused gunman with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, felony murder, two counts of robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.
