Early this morning police received a 911 call about a man who was shot inside a grocery store on Montgomery Street and Utica Avenue, when officers arrived they discovered a 28-year-old man who was shot in the head.

EMS declared the victim dead at the scene.

The identity of the deceased is pending family notification. Police have also said that there are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

In April police officers had a fatal encounter with Saheed Vassell, an emotionally disturbed man who charged at officers with what appeared to be a firearm and was shot and killed. That incident occurred just across the street from today’s incident.

Kids go to school where they are taught all about the Civil Rights uprising but they are not taught how to be civilized!
Where are our elected officials when it comes to saving the lives of our public school children?!?
Where is sharpton when his own people address killing each other?

I know that we are concerned firstly for lives, but does this lower property values?
