Gunmen target Chinese groceries

In other city crime news, a Chinese owned grocery in West Landivar was robbed on Saturday night. Proprietors Qias Na Guan and Zhi Xin Lin told police that as they were closing shop around nine p.m. four armed men emerged from a car parked nearby, entered the store and took fifteen hundred dollars from them, along with an unknown amount from the cash pan.

Earlier that evening another Chinese shop was hit, this time on Fairweather Street. Merchant Huang Wei Quang told police that a man with a shotgun approached the counter demanding money. He then fired a single shot that hit the door, but Huang never did hand over any money and the robber ran off.
