Because of how close-knit the Bosnian community is in Lawrenceville, the tragic incident has shocked everyone. “People cannot believe something like this in this area happens,” said Elvis Sinanovic, the victim’s friend. “It’s devastating…I don’t know what to say.”
“We know him for at least 20 years…this bakery has been here for about 20 years. I bought many times, bread from him,” Sinanovic said. After 20 years of knowing him…About twenty years have passed at this bakery. “I purchased bread from him on multiple occasions,” Sinanovic remarked.
Mary Hollowell, who has had her antique shop in the plaza next door for 26 years, claims that this is the only occurrence of its like that she has witnessed or heard of. “I’ve never felt unsafe walking in and out of here, but it can happen anywhere, I guess unfortunately for the young man,” said Hollowell.
The victim’s identity has not been released by the police, but Sinanovic, a longtime acquaintance, told FOX 5 that the deceased was a cherished parent and spouse. “He was a quiet guy, a family guy, like I said, he just had his second baby born…it was for everybody shocked,” according to him.
