Zakir Indawala, an employee, intervened when the suspect became combative with another customer.

I saw him with a rifle, and he was crying as he left, the bodega worker Zakir Indawala claimed. The firearm was a huge one, I saw it.

Fleming then showed a weapon while standing at the bodega’s entrance. Once the child got past Fleming, she bolted out of the store.

When a witness dialed 911, the police arrived. In broad daylight, Fleming started rushing down the sidewalk while brandishing a semi-automatic carbine weapon.

The.357 and the gun were found.

Fleming, 39, is facing up to 15 years in jail for gun possession after a crime.
