Slain Dunkin’ Donuts manager mourned in Woodside

The manager of a Harlem Dunkin' Donuts from Woodside who was shot and killed inside the store over the weekend was mourned by family and friends Wednesday.

Police believe Sanjoy Kar, 25, may have been murdered by an ex-convict in a failed robbery attempt Sunday. The suspect was being questioned by police in Harlem Wednesday, NY1 reported.

Tim Mahon, a co-worker of Kar's, told the television statement that the 25-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant was hoping to save money to eventually open up his own business.

"He had a lot of goals and it's sad to know those goals aren't going to be achieved," Mahon said as he attended a service for Kar in Woodside.

Besides working as the manager of the Harlem Dunkin' Donuts, Kar was a student at LaGuardia Community College and wanted to transfer to Baruch College, where he also worked as a support worker in a computer lab, the New York Post reported.

The man being questioned in Kar's murder is also a suspect in 15 other robberies in Manhattan from October through December, including three other Dunkin' Donuts locations, according to NY1.
