Police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Joy Food Mart at 2109 North Roxboro St. just before 1 a.m. July 4. When officers arrived, they heard shots inside the business and found Mahmood behind the counter unconscious.

A Durham Police Department report on the incident shows that Mahmood was shot four times by Dmarlo Johnson, 26.

Nonviolent Durham called Mahmood a “Good man, a devoted husband, father and friend.”

A GoFundMe account has been established to help with funeral expenses.
