The co-owner of a Canal Street tobacco and vape shop fatally shot a man near his store Wednesday afternoon and later tried to convince investigators that he was defending his business from daily threats and harassment, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Khutbi Abdelkader, who co-owns Smoke Sum at 926 Canal St., faces a count of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Anthony Francois, records filed by police in criminal court on Thursday show.

Following Francois’ slaying, Abdelkader told detectives that Francois “had been harassing and threatening” him and his brother — his business partner — “almost daily for over a week after they had told (Francois) he was not welcome in their store anymore,” police wrote in the sworn court filings.

Those business owners ruined Canal St, so maybe they’re the ones that can fix it

What is it about that chin up, staring down the nose look that dudes trying to look tough in booking photos do? Just look at the camera a-hole.

That DA is going to eat this up if the guy he killed is black.

These “businesses” are one of the bigger issues with canal and the quarter. Motwani and all his friends specifically. Sounds like everyone involved is a pile of shite.

He probably should have made a better statement to the cops. What he said ain’t gonna fly.

Anthony Francis is indeed a black male who was just let out of OPP.

Explain. I've only ever known Canal as chain stores and seedy tourist merchandise stores.

The Rubenstein and Adler families need to bring in the mossad to clean up the area.

Officers said they secured surveillance footage from a passing Regional Transit Authority bus which showed Francois walk past Smoke Sum before Abdelkader followed him roughly two storefronts away. The video shows Abdelkader and Francois “exchange words” before Abdelkader advanced two steps and shot Francois, police wrote in the court filings.

Francois fell the ground, mortally wounded, in front of Golden Perfume and Jewelry at 916 Canal St. Police noted that neither Francois nor the witness accompanying him were “in possession of any firearms” seen in the surveillance footage.

I'm just going to call him Gary until we get the trial hashed out. That's entirely too many syllables.

re: Canal Street business owner takes policing into his own hands and kills man
Oh, so the cops do nothing until someone does their job for them, and THEN they show up and arrest that person?


I’m so confused by the leaps in logic.

These people scream All Cops Are Bastards, then immediately run and cry for the police when someone takes matters into their own hands.
