Mid-South murder caught on tape

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Caught on camera, a brutal shooting inside a neighborhood market. One man is now dead and another employee is in the hospital.

Investigators hope the video helps catch a killer. A man who apparently had nothing more on his mind when he pulled the trigger.

In fewer than 10 seconds, an elderly man was murdered steps from the front door of his neighborhood market. On the video, you can see the gunman aiming right at him. You then see the suspect shoot a female employee standing in an aisle as another man appears to run for his life.

The entire assault was caught on several surveillance cameras. Each a unique angle on this brief, but brutal, crime.

24 hours after the crime, the store is closed.

Customers have placed teddy bears on the front door. One leaving a message that reads "we need to pray for our city."

Lovie Smith came here every day.

"They was some good people...really good hearted people and, I mean, if you don't have enough change, they'll let you go 'cause they know you're going to bring it back," Smith said.

Friends gunned down by a mystery man. A shooter who never seemed to make any demands and does not stick around long enough to steal anything.
    
The man who was killed was identified as 68 year-old Eada Zhad. The female employee who was shot is recovering at The MED.
