3rd person dies after hammer attack at Brooklyn restaurant: police

SHEEPSHEAD BAY, Brooklyn — A third person has died more than a week after a man attacked several people with a hammer inside a Brooklyn buffet, police said Thursday.

Arthur Martunovich, 34, was arrested on Jan. 15 after police said he walked into the Seaport Buffet on Emmons Avenue near East 21st Street just after 5 p.m. and started striking employees with a hammer.

A chef at the buffet, 34-year-old Fufai Pun, died at the hospital that day while the 60 year-old restaurant owner and the 50 year-old manager were said to be in critical condition.

The restaurant owner later died, police said on Jan. 18, while authorities announced the death of Tsz Pun, 50,  on Thursday.

The attack was unprovoked and Martunovich was an emotionally disturbed person, police said.

A rally was scheduled outside the buffet Friday in support of the Asian community following the incident.
