A man was killed in a shooting that took place inside a smoke shop located in the Harlem area

According to the police, a man was fatally shot inside a Harlem smoke shop on Sunday night, which is the latest incident of crimes that have occurred at smoking product stores.

The victim, who was 36 years old, was caught on disturbing video standing at a counter inside the store called “Just Smoke Shop,” with several other men behind him, before 8 p.m.

In the video, he is seen exchanging words with another man. As he turns his back to leave, the other man pulls out a gun and shoots him in the neck area.

The victim falls face down on the floor, while others inside the store scramble for the exit. The shooter walks towards the victim and shoots him again before reaching into one of his pockets.

The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The police said that neither the victim nor the shooter worked at the store, and they recovered two shell casings from the scene on Lenox Ave. near W. 125th St.

The cause of the shooting was not immediately known.

The smoke shop where the fatal shooting occurred on Sunday in Harlem was not confirmed to sell marijuana. However, the increasing number of shootings and robberies at smoke shops in the city, since the legalization of recreational marijuana, has raised concern among New Yorkers and elected officials.

In a recent incident, a 20-year-old man was fatally shot inside a Queens smoke shop that sold marijuana products. Another incident involved a smoke shop worker in Lower Manhattan who was pepper-sprayed and punched by a shoplifter.

In the past few months, officials have been dealing with the issue of stores selling marijuana products without the proper licenses.

In February, Mayor Adams and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg warned unlicensed shops of potential eviction.
