There was Karp's on Flatbush about a half dozen blocks north of the Junction on the west side if that is the one you are referring to. It was the site of a killing when Artie Holst was killed there. The story I heard was that the owner wanted the manager to get rid of him so the manager took it literally and shot him. I don't know if that is true but that is what the story was around the neighborhood. Things were confused when a witness was determined to not be of sound mind and a sentence reduction resulted. If anyone has better info I would defer to them.
