Business went on as usual Wednesday at the Save-On Market on the corner of Willow and Knollwood in Lansing after a man was gunned down and four others were injured on New Years Day.
A neighbor told 6 News the store's late hours invite trouble to the area and the deadly shooting didn't surprise him.
"This is what they call the hangout. You get anything you want right on that corner. Drugs, sex, whatever. There's fights that happen here all the time," said Walter Brown, president of the Neighborhood Association.
It's a statement that has some Save-On customers fired up.
"What really offends me is this guy out here, coming here and pointing his finger at that store saying that's the problem with this neighborhood, because it's not," said Noris Gibson, a customer at the Save-On. "I'm out here to point my finger at basically the thugs that are running around our community causing problems."
The store's owner, who goes by Jimmy says his store is secure. He has a total of 12 cameras both inside and outside the store, all that were rolling during the time of the shooting. The footage has since been turned over to Lansing police for evidence.
He says he's a little shaken up, but doesn't regret staying open until 2 a.m. on New Year's Day at his customers' request. As for increasing security in his store, he believes there's not much more he can do. Some of his customers seem to agree.
"This is a good productive store and they're hard working and they're just doing their job like everybody else," said Che Swanson, a regular customer. "They can't control what happens on the outside."
"I don't think you can do anything about people's behavior. It's the way they act," added Gibson.
The owner say he's not sure if he'll change store hours. Right now, they're in line with many other party stores across the city: closing at midnight Monday through Thursday and 2a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
