First day of summer break
A real tragedy occurred in our community yesterday afternoon. A local businessman who owns a mom and pop grocery store between Port Orchard and Southworth was murdered with a rifle at close range in front of his store in broad daylight. There were many witnesses and the suspect was arrested within several minutes of the shooting. They have not found a motive as of yet. The victim was a well repected community leader with two teenagers, one who is an acquaintance of Markus. There has been an amazing amount of community supporrt for the family.
