Washington had been in business at the location near the KIPP High School campus for multiple years and was well-known within that neighborhood.

He was open as usual and robbery appears to have been the motive.  Sources have reported that there are two persons of interest being questioned by law enforcement officials.

Expressions of sadness from his customers and friends have already started surfacing on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
