Babul Meah and Abu Yousuf, two men of Bangladeshi descent were shot and killed in Buffalo on Saturday, April 27th, 2024, sparking an outcry in the local Bengali community.

The duo were handymen who frequently worked together were shot and killed by a squatter when they entered a property they believed to be empty on 148 Zenner Street.

One victim was shot on the porch almost immediately as they approached the property while the 2nd was found shot in the streets. Police believe a squatter got spooked by their appearance at the home and shot them.

“There is no indication that the men who were at the house doing work were targeted,” Mayor Byron Brown said.

“It appears there was a squatter inside the house, someone who should not have been there or was not authorized to live there.

“It appears anyone who came to that house and tried to go in, this individual who did the shooting would have shot them. It could have been the postal worker, the cable person, the gas company, the electric company.”
