update on yesterday evening's fatal shooting

February 3, 2016 11:08 AM

Good morning neighbors,

If you retired early yesterday evening then you are just getting news this morning of a fatal shooting just outside Metro Market last night.

MPD is searching for person of interest Christopher O'Kroley, who is 6 ft tall, 180lbs and may be driving a 2000 silver VW Jetta. He is considered armed and dangerous so if you do see someone of this description please do not approach him but rather call 911.

I have tremendous faith in our east district police officers and am confident in their continued ability to handle this situation.

At this time unofficial sources tell me that the deceased young woman and the assailant knew one another and were co-workers at Metro Market.

This morning many in our community are balancing two thoughts. In our shock we take some measure of comfort in learning that this was not a random act of violence to which any of us could have been a target while shopping at our neighborhood grocery. In our anger and grief we recognize that a young woman has lost her life, a family has lost their daughter, and that far too many of our neighbors and countrymen are taken from us each year in horrendously violent acts.

In light of this event, I want to be sure to invite you once again to tomorrow evening's information and processing session hosted by MPD at Kennedy Elementary School library from 6pm-7pm. This meeting was originally planned to discuss the home invasion in our neighborhood from several days ago, and I'm sure many of us will want to process this event as well.

I invite you to join me in keeping the deceased's family in your thoughts and in remaining firm in our resolve that everyone has the right to be safe in their workplace and their community.

Amanda M-M Hall

Alder, District 3
