November 28, 1999

A grocery store employee was shot and killed and the shop's owner seriously wounded during a robbery yesterday as the store opened, Baltimore police said.

Witnesses told police they saw two people walk into Kim's Grocery in the 300 block of E. 24th St. about 9 a.m. The robbers shot the grocer and employee several times before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money, said Sgt. Scott Rowe, a police spokesman.

En Suk Oh, 40, who lived above the store, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10 a.m. Young Lee, 55, of the same address, was also taken to Shock Trauma, where he was in fair condition last night, Rowe said.
