On Friday, the man identified as the suspect behind a fatal shooting in an East Harlem Burger King was officially charged with murder and robbery.
While being taken away from the 25th precinct in handcuffs, 30-year-old Winston Glynn yelled at the crowd that gathered outside, who berated him as he exited the building.
"She gave you the money, man. Why?" One man can be heard asking Glynn.
“You're garbage! You're garbage! You're real garbage, motherf*ker,” an onlooker yelled.
At one point, Glynn, who is black, can be heard ranting "Where's our reparations for four hundred years of f*king slavery!"
At another point, Glynn shouted "America is gonna burn!" according to the New York Post.
Early Sunday morning, 19-year-old Kristal Bayron Nieves was working at the Burger King location in East Harlem. Police say that Glynn approached the register in the fast food restaurant and removed $100 from the register. Nieves was behind the counter, according to CBS 2.
"The man demands more money from the register drawer. As Miss Bayron Nieves is scrambling to open the drawer, she doesn't have the key," NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said. "The male fires one shot, striking her and causing her death."
"There was no reason to shoot this young woman. Money had been handed over. She was trying to comply with the gunman's demands," NYPD Chief of Department Kenneth Corey said. "She was killed for no apparent reason."
Glynn, who has four prior arrests, was found in Brooklyn on Thursday night and was taken into custody.
On Friday, police reportedly questioned Glynn, and officially charged him.
Police say that Glynn had previously worked at the Burger King location in 2020, but was not working there the same time as Nieves.
"All indications are that he knew this place well, that he pre-planned the event," said Essig.
"I hope he gets what he deserves," said neighbor June Lloyd."I'm broken hearted for her. Broken hearted. It is so sad in these times you can't go about your everyday life."
Lloyd said the Nieves family moved to the building from Puerto Rico around two years ago and spoke with them in passing. She noted that she has not seen the mother of the teen around the building since the shooting.
