        It’s not that hard to figure out. I thought the same thing; an angry customer who got mad at one of the cashiers. Either that or it’s something more personal and the murderer knew the employee and wanted revenge of some sort for some personal reasons. But we can never be too sure so we should not speculate.
        I do pray for the repose of his soul whomever he was. May perpetual light shine upon him and may his soul through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
        And may God have mercy on the shooter. He really needs it.
