For Sara Martin, a cashier at Ralphs supermarket in Studio City, it's the memory of an early October morning last year when, wedged between two robbers, she stared down the barrel of a gun. For Jim Crocker it's the image of a Coca-Cola salesman taking a bullet in the head as Crocker and four other employees were held hostage at gunpoint at a Ralphs in Van Nuys.

Dark and dirty except for the spray paint, this hardscrabble corner of West Philly was ditched by all but two die-hard grocers. Both were hard-working and well-liked, and both were gunned down over their counters late last year. The murders of Milton Wilks and Won Joo Choi represent more than personal tragedies.
