19-Year-Old Killed at Burger King Started Working Few Weeks Before Robbery

Community members in Harlem stopped by to mourn 19-year-old Kristal Bayron-Nieves at the Burger King where the young cashier was shot and killed in a robbery on Sunday.

The NYPD said officers rushed to the fast food establishment around 12:45 a.m. Sunday for reports of a man with a gun and an employee shot inside the Burger King on East 116th Street.

Kristal Bayron-Nieves was found with a gunshot wound to her torso and was transported to Metropolitan Hospital where officials pronounced her dead.

Police said the armed assailant entered the Burger King brandishing his gun and demanding money from its employees. During that exchange, the unidentified man fired the bullet that struck Bayron-Nieves and pistol-whipped a manager and customer also inside at the time, before fleeing.
