Second Detroit clerk charged over customer dispute-induced shooting

A clerk was charged with murder Thursday in a second recent middle-of-the-night fatal shooting at Detroit gas stations related to disputes with customers.

“This simply cannot continue to happen,” Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy said.

Anthony McNary, 25, was shot through the door after the clerk had kicked him out of the gas station and locked the door Monday, Worthy said.

Moments earlier, Moad Al-Gaham had removed a beef stick from McNary’s pocket and then refused to let him pay for it, the prosecutor said.

Al-Gaham was in a “place of safety on the other side of a locked glass door and pulled the trigger,” Worthy said, adding that the clerk was in no “immediate danger.”

Some have drawn parallels between Al-Gaham’s case and that of Al-Hassan Aiyash, another Detroit clerk charged with involuntary manslaughter after a shoplifter opened fire on customers he had locked inside.

But defense attorney Doraid Elder said Al-Gaham may have been threatened, adding it’s not clear if the door was locked.

“That will be one of the issues at stake here. We’ll have that door examined,” Elder told The Associated Press. “This is a loss for both families.”

Al-Gaham, 40, was ordered to jail without bond.

On May 6, at a different Detroit gas station, a customer fatally shot another customer. A clerk, who was behind security glass, had remotely locked the door during an argument over a failed electronic purchase.
