Son of late Black Muslim leader gunned down in botched carjacking

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A son of the controversial late leader of a black Muslim group here was shot and killed in what police described as a botched carjacking.

Antar Bey, 24, was shot at an Oakland gas station Tuesday.

Bey was the appointed successor to Yusuf Bey, a leader in the Bay area's Muslim community who died of colon cancer in 2003.

The 67-year-old was best known as the founder of Your Black Muslim Bakery, famed for its bean and carrot pies and known as having an open door to struggling families.

But Yusuf Bey's reputation took a hit in later years as he defended himself against allegations in Alameda County that he raped young women from 1976 to 1995. Those charges were later dropped.

Members of the Black Muslim organization, which includes retail businesses, a school and housing units, said there has been a struggle for control of the Bey empire since Yusuf Bey's death.

Two other relatives have also been targets of violence.

In July 2004, police found the badly decomposed body of Waajid Aljawaad Bey, 51, the president and chief executive of Your Black Muslim Bakery, buried in a shallow grave in the Oakland hills.

This summer, a gunman ambushed and seriously injured John Bey, the adopted son of Yusuf Bey, as he left his Montclair area home.

Why couldn't poor Antar just get a job at the bakery and go to school?

The raping of young women and internecine violence in Muslim circles? Who could've guessed?

Why not cabbage cookies? Or tomato-flavored candy bars? Or lima bean cake?

Uh, why the "one down" comment? Is there something I don't know...because this looks like some guy was killed in an attempted carjacking.

and yet, there are people who actually want this kind of nonsense imported into this country, condoned and uninvestigated

I don't know, but I somehow suspect that this so-called "botched carjacking" might have actually been a hit.

I'm just curious...cause I do not know who this guy is or the organization in question. Guess there is probably more to the story than the paper published...nothing new there.

Yeah just the 'already killed' thingy. Did you check out their bakery site? The scrolling "A Taste Of The Hereafter" on the index page???

Must have been law enforcement picking on the minorities.

IN another thread they detail several other attempts on his life. And I believe I read somewhere the shooter made no attempt to get into the car.

"Black Muslim organization" and "vacuum at the top" generally rather reliably means "assassinations incoming"

Carjacking...yeah right.

One of their rivals just capped another.

It was SUPPOSED to look like a carjacking.
