Early Friday, August 26th there was home invasion robbery in which two suspects entered a home on Moran Avenue. The suspects were confronted by the occupants and two of the residents were shot, one of them fatally.
A candlelight vigil to express our sorrow and solidarity for the victims of this horrible incident occurred that evening at the victims’ home. Our heartfelt thanks to all who attended and to the many neighbors and police officers working to support this family in their time of need.
Many neighbors have offered assistance and the family is very appreciative of these efforts. As they are in mourning they are adhering to a special diet so food donations are not appropriate at this time. The best way our community can help this stricken family is through monetary donations and a fund for the family has been established:
Cash or check contributions can be made to “The Kumar Family Benefit” at any Mechanics Bank branch.
Let’s all pull together and show our support for this wonderful and innocent family that has been dealt such a cruel blow. Every little bit helps!
