The family of a man who died after an altercation with workers at a Flatbush grocery store is pushing Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez for a grand jury investigation.
Relatives and supporters of Ralph Nimmons are already boycotting Stop & Shop, where Nimmons died April 14 after store workers tackled him and accused him of shoplifting.
Nimmons had a heart condition, according to relatives, and the workers allegedly ignored his pleas for help.
“We want justice and we’re calling for extra witnesses so we can close in on this grand jury indictment.” said the victim’s uncle,” Bonzelee Nimmons, 59. “Please come forward.”
Investigators have activated a hotline number — 718-250-2040 — for tips and clues.
The medical examiner’s office has ruled Nimmons’ death a homicide.
The family’s attorney, Sanford Rubenstein, called the incident a “wrongful death” case after a meeting with Gonzalez.
A spokeswoman for Stop & Shop said the company was working with Gonzalez’s team.
