Craft attempted to use merchandise from the store to staunch the bleeding from Ukachukwu’s wounds, but the 34-year-old father of two died at the scene.
“It’s terrible. It’s going to be bad for a while, real bad. This is a real big loss,” Craft told KPRC-TV.
“He didn’t deserve this,” said another of the victim’s friends, Ryan Robinson.
Police said one suspect wore a beige hoodie while the other had on a black hoodie with the character Naruto on the back.
