"The victim shooting [sic] was a panhandler, who was known to use a wheelchair though he did not need one, and it appears he was targeted, according to an official with knowledge of the investigation."

Aw man, I think I met that guy at the Stop and Shop. He loved my off-road truck and told me all about his time (allegedly) as a rally driver in South Carolina. Seemed like a decent dude.

He was a decent guy. I saw him a few times a week. I am heartbroken.

Do you know if he was receiving services anywhere? My family and I would like to make a donation in his honor but we have no clue where would have the most impact or be most appropriate to honor his memory.
