Keri Libey is a regular at the bar. She’s urging anyone who may have been there that night or know the man and woman to come forward.
“Be honest, and be open, and help those who got shot,” Libey said. “Because they have families that suffered too.”
Nearby business owners said that while smaller petty crimes are common in this area, they were shocked to hear of such a violent armed robbery.
Libey said she feels this is part of a larger trend of crime and violence increasing throughout the city.
“You never know who you’re standing next to, just don’t ever judge anybody by their looks,” Libey said. “There’s scandalous people around here and they don’t care.”
