Kroger Shooting Suspect Pleads Not Guilty In Murder Of Two Black People

The 51-year-old gunman suspected of targeting Black store-goers at a Jeffersontown, Kentucky Kroger pleads not guilty, prosecutors said on Friday, November 2.

NBC News reports Gregory Alan Bush was indicted by a grand jury this week on two counts of murder, one count of criminal attempted murder and two counts of wanton endangerment.

On October 24, Bush entered the grocery store and opened fire, killing 69-year-old shopper Maurice E. Stallard. Reports state the victim was inside the store with his 12-year-old grandson. Arrest records state Bush pulled out his gun and shot Stallard in the head and several times as he laid dying on the floor. Stallard’s grandson made it out alive,

Then, Bush exited the store killing his second victim, Vickie Lee Jones, 67, in the parking lot.

“It’s particularly in times of loss and tragedy that our constitution and our laws are particularly tested,” Bush’s attorney, Angela Elleman, said. “Mr. Bush, of course, has the right to due process and a fair trial that we all are honored to have.”
