“There is someone in this community that is going to recognize this individual’s mannerisms,” Interim Chief Brett Meade said.

The footage shows the armed suspect, covered in black clothing. In the video, you hear the suspect arguing with one of the owners who is off-screen. It eventually cuts to the suspect fleeing the store.

Police said they responded to the T&N Market on North Grandview Street around 8:50 p.m. on Dec. 7. When they arrived, they found a man and woman, identified as the owners of the store, inside with gunshot wounds.
