One dead, two critical after hammer attack inside Sheepshead Bay eatery

One person is dead and two are critically injured after a hammer-wielding attacker smashed his way through a Sheepshead Bay restaurant on Tuesday evening.

According to police, a 34-year-old man entered Seaport Buffet at 2027 Emmons Ave. just after 5 p.m. brandishing a hammer, which he used to strike three employees before fleeing the scene.

Emergency Medical Services responded and rushed the three victims — all men, ages 60, 50 and 34 — to NYU Langone-Brooklyn.

The youngest, Sheepshead Bay resident Fufai Pun, was pronounced dead at the hospital while the others — whose names have not yet been released — remain in critical condition.

Another Sheepshead Bay resident, 34-year-old Arthur Martunovich, was arrested following the attack and has since been charged with murder, two counts of attempted murder and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

The attack took place within the confines of the 61st Precinct.

According to reports, some patrons took cover from the scene inside nearby eatery Randazzo’s Clam Bar.

“I heard a bunch of people screaming ‘He’s killing people! Lock all the doors!,’” restaurant manager Samantha Randazzo told the New York Post.
