Ayub Ali, the owner at the Aunt Molly's Food Store convenience store in North Lauderdale, was killed in a robbery that turned violent Tuesday afternoon.
"He took money from the cash register and left". But authorities allege the man returned to the store and fatally shot Ali.
Ali was a father of four and two of his children-a son and daughter-survived the February 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting.
The suspect is described as wearing a "black vest, reddish-orange shorts with a black and white stripe on the sides, reddish-orange slides, and a skull cap with "Miami" stitched on the front".
Ali was taken to a nearby medical centre where he was declared dead.
The convenience store reopened Thursday and loyal customers made a makeshift memorial for Ali, who was born in Bangladesh.
The data firm TargetSmart analyzed voter registration information from 38 states and D.C., and found that registration rates for youth voters "have significantly increased in key battleground states over the last seven months", which could have remarkable consequences for candidates who are running for political office this year.
Two of Mr Ali's children, a son and a daughter, managed to survive the Valentine's Day attack on their Parkland high school.
"This is the biggest part that hurts me", Rios told the station. "He watched it on TV". "They have to be without their dad for the rest of their life", Ali's friend Alex Rios told NBC 6.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office has reached out to the public in the hopes that someone will recognize the suspected shooter from the surveillance footage.
