There was a shooting at the Friendly Center today, my happy place. It took place, either inside or outside, but directly at the Old Navy store at the Friendly Center. There was a man in a wig who robbed a another man who works for the Brinks money truck company. Brinks employee was leaving Old Navy, so he only had O.N. cash on him. The robber shot the man twice and fled. The poor man who got shot was taken to the hospital and died. I hear he has a toddler and wife at home.

I'm so saddened by this, on so many levels. The family!!! It's so close to Christmas and it will be again, every year for the rest of their lives. The shoppers who witnessed the man bleeding to death, for doing nothing wrong but his job.

On my part, my husband works at Barnes & Noble which is REALLY close, like only 1 or 2 shops away! When he came home, we hugged for a long time even though our daughter was talking away. There was nothing to say. You do what you can in life, to help yourselves, to cover your own a$$, but in the end you just never know.

Today and every day this week you need to hug someone you love really long and hard, and tell them how much you appreciate them being there with you in your life.

That was senseless and sad. Why did he have to shoot the guy?

Hopefully they'll find and execute the guy. Enough of this crap, time to start swinging 'em from the gallows.

Sounds like they will have to change the name of the place to the "unfriendly center".

After looking at the surveillance photos, anyone else thinking that this could POSSIBLY be a woman?

I think the witnesses there claimed the person to be male.

Police described the shooter as a black man with a dark complexion, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and wearing a shoulder-length, dark red wig.

'Tis the season. About this time last year one of my retailers (Aman Mini Mart) was robbed & murdered. Also more recently the partner from Red Mike's Grocery was murdered. It really cuts to the core when it hits this close to home.

So sad. Some one posted photos of the crime scene on flickr showing blood every where.
