Police interviewed survivors and combed the city Saturday for two armed robbers who may have posed as cleaners to get into a closed grocery store where they killed five employees and wounded two others, authorities said. Two employees of the National Supermarket store, working in a back room, escaped injury by climbing onto the roof, police said. After the gunmen fled in a car, the two called down to a woman on the street to telephone police. The robbers entered the store shortly after 11 p.m.

"Jake has been described as a constant ball of energy, a bright light always shining," Father Kevin Cameron told mourners.
