Family demands answers after Afghan refugee is shot dead in his car in San Francisco in attempted robbery


SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – The family of an Uber driver is looking for answers after his death in a shooting in San Francisco last month.

It happened early on Sunday November 28 when Ahmed Yusufi, a 31-year-old Afghan refugee from south Sacramento, was in the Bay Area for work.

Speaking through an interpreter, his wife said Yusufi was sitting in his car in San Francisco when someone approached him and attempted to steal his wallet before shooting him.

“He was a caring man, he took care of his family. He sacrificed his life for his family,” Kamala Yusufi said.

Uber says he wasn’t working at the time.

San Francisco Police are investigating the murder, but so far no arrests have been made.
