Ervin Fejzic, 37, was shot to death in the parking lot of his family-run business, Fejzic Euro Bakery, on Scenic Highway.

Police now believe an armed robbery over $50 led to the murder.

Friends of the Fejzic told Channel 2 Action News that he recently became a father and was an outstanding member of the community.

“I’ve known the family for 20 years. You always ask yourself why bad things happen to good people and this is one of those instances. It came as a shock. The whole community is shocked,” Kenan Mustic said.
