Police said Shubrick got into an argument with a cab driver outside Premier Fashion, then went inside the store and tried to steal a baseball cap.
Witnesses said Martinez grabbed a large stick and demanded he return the hat. That’s when Shubrick allegedly stabbed him multiple times.
Martinez left behind four children and the business he spent years building to support his family.
