Roudi was killed from a gunshot wound to his head when a young man robbed the Pick ‘N Mix Mart on DeSouza Road where he worked

The incident happened shortly after 1 pm. The gunman fled the scene with an undetermined sum of money from the cashier in the mart. 

He came to Antigua from Syria during the Covid-19 pandemic and was working towards his wedding. His fiancé lives in Syria.
