Late Tuesday evening, Hassan Salame, proprietor of Lama’s Florist, was fatally shot outside of Xushi Ko in Dearborn.
Following a dinner with his fiancée, they were en route to their vehicle around 9:30 p.m. when an assailant, armed and demanding their possessions, including Salame’s Rolex, approached them.
Positioned near their black Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, the assailant opened fire, striking Salame in the chest.
Salame was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was declared deceased.
