Bangladeshi community calls for more security after murder

The Bronx Bangladeshi community is calling for more security after one of their own was shot and killed while at work.

Community officials and friends rallied yesterday in front of the Kennedy Fried Chicken at 218 E. 165th Street where Mohammed Hossain worked. Police say the 26-year-old was shot and killed by a customer.

Friends say Hossain worked 17 hours a day to provide for his wife and young son who live in Bangladesh. They hope to start a scholarship for the child in Hossain's honor.
