One month after St. Matthews Kroger murder, mystery remains

Posted: Updated:

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - One month after a St. Matthews Kroger employee was gunned down at the end of his shift, police are still seeking answers.

34-year-old Jack Combs was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Kroger off Hubbards Lane in late November, and right now, St. Matthews Police desperately need tips from the public to solve the case.

 

With the Christmas season here, it looks like things are back to normal at this Hubbards Lane shopping center. But they're not.

Co-owner of Play It Again Sports Shawn Harkins says business owners and customers are concerned that there's still a killer on the loose.

"Nothing like that ever happens around here," Harkins said, "so yeah, it took us all by surprise."

This week marks one month since 34 year old Kroger employee Jack Combs was shot and killed at the end of his shift. 

"I mean you've heard a few things," said Harkins.

Since then, there have been plenty of rumors but no arrests, and that's why there's still some concern.

 St. Matthews Police are hoping a $30-thousand dollar reward in the case will motivate someone to come forward with information that leads to an arrest.

"Definetly when you close at night you think about it," said Harkins. "Hopefully they'll get 'em soon."

And until that happens, both customers and business owners will continue to watch their backs.

If you have any information, you are asked to contact St. Matthews Police.
