Dad Of Brother And Sister Parkland Survivors Is Fatally Shot In Robbery

Ayub Ali, the father of four, died five months after his son and daughter survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Elama Ali became an anti-violence advocate after the Parkland shooting and her father encouraged her to travel to Washington for the "March for Our Lives" rally in March.

Ayub Ali was shot and killed in his convenience store in North Lauderdale, Florida this week. He came to the United States from Bangladesh in the late 1990s, and moved to Parkland just last year - the same year it was named Florida's safest city. "When i was in Washington, he asked about it".

Ali's store, Aunt Molly's Food Store, is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. "He watched it on TV", she told CNN. Investigators say the robber left but returned moments later, took Ali back to the office, and that's where they say he shot him.

The UK government has blamed Russian Federation for the incident, but the country's authorities deny any involvement. Police say the source of the Novichok which killed Sturgess was a small bottle they found in Rowley's house.

Ali lived in the Meadow Run community with his wife Farhana.

Ali's wife said she can not make sense of the crime.

In a surveillance video from police, a man-who was later identified by the authorities as Fields-is spotted putting a black object to Ali's back, following him around the counter, taking money from the register, and then leaving. "We're trying to be strong, but it's overwhelming".
