Police said Stephen Stewart, 24, was found unconscious and shot in his middle section at 3559 Holland Avenue, after a heated exchange with a woman inside the restaurant spilled out onto the street.

“He is always the one who brings peace. He destroyed most of the family. His aunt, who did not give her name, said in an interview. “I don’t know why someone would do this to him, in a simple matter. This did not call for someone to lose.”

His family said Stewart came to the United States only three months ago. He was working at Cooler Runnings Jamaican Restaurant on Nereid Street where co-workers said he was “always dancing”.

Police sources said Stewart and a companion left on Friday after the woman became angry because they were standing near her, and none of the men wore a mask.

Stewart’s friend said the woman followed, and threatened to get her boyfriend. A man appeared moments later and told the woman to “go get her,” said the friend, who said he ran while Stewart stayed behind.

When the friend returned to the scene, Stewart died, according to his friend.
