NEW YORK — A robber shot and killed a 19-year-old worker at an East Harlem Burger King early Sunday morning, police said.

Officers were called to the fast-food chain at 154 East 116 St., near Lexington Avenue, around 12:45 a.m.

When police arrived, they found Kristal Bayron-Nieves with a gunshot wound to the torso. EMS rushed her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Investigators said they believe a male suspect entered the Burger King, displayed a gun, demanded money and shot Bayron-Nieves during the robbery. The suspect then fled the Burger King, heading west on East 116 Street.

The NYPD later released surveillance video of the gunman.

Community leaders held a vigil for Bayron-Nieves Sunday night.
