Shubrick confessed to fatally stabbing 47-year-old Yonkers resident Ruben Martinez Campos.

“Today, we have ensured a violent individual, who ruthlessly took the life of a man trying to protect his business and livelihood, is off our streets. Our thoughts are with Mr. Campos’s family and the Yonkers community," DA Rocah said.

Campo owned a store on Main Street in Yonkers. Officials didn't release what store he owned.
