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.
He was already shot in another thread.
24 years old? Hey, nice ride! Musta mowed A LOT of lawns, eh?
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?
> famed for its bean and carrot pies ...
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.
Ah yes, they used to sell them on lower Telegraph Avenue.
(Special recipe for white people.)
and yet, there are people who actually want this kind of nonsense imported into this country, condoned and uninvestigated
I saw that earlier..Thanks.
Black Muslim leader is slain in Oakland ^
I don't know, but I somehow suspect that this so-called "botched carjacking" might have actually been a hit.
I sure hope they nailed the white supremacist scumball who did this!
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.
What is that supposed to mean?
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.
more likely internecine butchery
Exactly my thoughts. 24 and a 735. Whats wrong with this picture? It doesn't add up.
"Black Muslim organization" and "vacuum at the top" generally rather reliably means "assassinations incoming"
Is America losing its best and brightest?
One down, too many more to go.
how bout worm gumbo?
Could I interest you in some okra ice cream?
Want to trade recipes?
One of their rivals just capped another.
It was SUPPOSED to look like a carjacking.
