"It’s upsetting and what not," said Hancock.

"This is one of the best neighborhoods you could live in when I was coming up as a youngster and even now. He (referring to store owner) had a robbery sometime ago and I thought the same thing had happened again."

As of late Monday evening, police did not release information on an identity of the victim or the suspect(s).
