"I've been coming here for years, nothing's ever happened," said Gail, 45, who stops by the store once a week for her 67-year-old mother and was surprised to see the police tape on Monday. She declined to give her last name.
"It's shocking," she continued. "It's such a lovely supermarket. I hope they catch him."
