    This is just terrible. I live right down the street from this store and go there everyday. The store owner is such a kind man, who I often see disrespected. However, he remains calm and smiling every day I see him. Also, the victim who was shot has always been polite every time I have seen him up there. I have never seen him hang around the “troubled”
    Crowd. I just can’t believe he would be mixed up in anything bad, so this shooting seems absolutely senseless.. Not that any shooting is, but I can’t think of one motive their would be to harm this man.

    He was shot because the “child” who shot him didn’t have the nerve, or other manly parts, to face the person he was having a beef with, so he drove by the store and sprayed the building hoping this would impress his victim. All he really did was shoot an innocent person.
