Slain pizzeria owner remembered as a compassionate man
LORAIN-Police and a community are still searching for answers regarding who shot and killed David Kowalczyk, the owner of Granny D's Pizza.
A candlelight vigil was held in front of the East Eire Avenue restaurant Monday night, where mourners laid crosses and flowers on the doorstep and hung signs saying Kowalczyk will be sadly missed. Blue, yellow and purple candles left pools of wax over much of the concrete entrance by Tuesday morning.
Lorain Police Chief Cel Rivera said Tuesday police are trying to determine whether Kowalczyk's shooting was related to two other armed robbies in recent weeks, one on June 16 when an off-duty security guard was forced to the ground at gunpoint during thr robbery of Chapman's Grocery on G Street and a second last week when a patron was shot in the stomach when he tried to follow a man who had robbed Jack and Diane's Lounge on West Eire Avenue.
