All three suspects allegedly met the first victim at the Safeway on Broadway and Campbell on July 28. The suspects got away with the shoes but the victim was not injured.

About two hours later, the suspects met up with Ron Everett Fitch, 30, in the parking lot of the Safeway at Campbell and Prince.

According to investigators, two of the suspects approached Fitch’s car door. Fitch was shot while fleeing and died at the scene.

Fitch allegedly had a gun that went missing after the shooting, but there was no evidence the gun was fired.

According to court documents, two pair of unique sneakers, as well as Fitch’s gun, were found in McComb’s home.

Detectives believe a third suspect is outstanding and are asking anyone with information to call 88-CRIME.
