Mt. Washington Donut King reopens 9 months after owner shot in head
MOUNT WASHINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- A local donut shop where the owner was shot in the head re-opened Tuesday morning.
Donut King in Mount Washington opened at 7 a.m., but the store posted on Facebook that it had to close early after quickly running out of donuts.
"19 years that we are open, never sold out in two hours," Jennifer Yeung said. Her father owns the store.
Customers continued to flock to the store looking for a donut well after the doors closed.
"I kind of thought that would happen, I told my daughter they're probably not going to have anything left," Customer Julie Exley said.
It's hard to believe Simon Yeung made 60 pounds of donuts early Tuesday morning, when just a few months ago he was in a hospital bed. Yeung was shot twice in the head behind his store last October. His family says the shooting caused him to lose his sight in one eye.
