The Shrimp Murder: Video shows two men being stabbed over shrimp inside a NYC fish market

A video is now being released that shows two brothers being stabbed inside a New York City Fish Market, leaving one of the brothers dead.

I don’t know if I would have stabbed someone over some damn SKRIMP, but it seems like one man did, and he’s claiming it was in self-defense.

The incident happened at Fish Express Fish Market on February 21, 2023, when brothers 29-year-old Robert “Bobby” Burrell and 25-year-old Malik Burrell rushed behind the counter, hurling chairs at the fish market workers.

34-year-old Junior Aquino Hernandez, a Fish Express worker, could be seen lunging at the brothers with a long-ass knife, repeatedly stabbing Malik and then Robert as they backed out of the store as fast as they could.

Malik later died from stab wounds, and his brother Robert was stable in the hospital.

According to the police, Robert entered the fish market to buy shrimp for a birthday celebration when he got into it really bad with one of the workers.

Before the stabbing, the video will show two workers wrestling with Robert as he tries to flee the store with a bag of shrimp. Robert drops the shrimp before swinging at one of the workers and fleeing the store.

Later in the video, Robert returns to the fish market and brings his brother along. When Robert and Malik entered the store, they rushed behind the counter, where they hurled chairs and started fighting with the workers.

Hernandez can be seen going to the back of the fish market, returning with a knife, and stabbing Robert and Malik.


The father of Malik said his son didn’t have a reason to steal shrimp because they had money on their cash apps and on their persons in cash.

I know damn well my sons aren’t stealing nothing, Robert Burrell said. They have money. They have money on their cash app, and they had money in their pocket. It’s crazy that they say he try to steal.

Initially, Hernandez was charged with murder in the melee, but the Manhattan DA tossed the charges pending further investigation.

Hernandez says he acted in self-defense. According to court records, he still has assaulted charges related to the incident and is due back in court on April 4.
