I don't know why I didn't hear or read a full conclusion about this in the news. This guy was found laying in our neighborhood school bus stop enclosure dead. Police wouldn't say anything but that "it didn't appear to be a safety concern". It would've put quite a few minds at ease to know the truth about the situation. What were we to think? Of course residents in the Auburn West Hill area were concerned about this!
What happened was earlier this guy had gone into Bonaci Jewelry store in Kent with a gun and intent to rob but failed. He got shot and fled... and this was the dead body that was found in the bus stop. If they had reported the story better, maybe it would send a message to people who think you can get away with crime like that. The store owner was protecting himself, a customer and his business. The end.
