OGDEN — Ogden police have arrested a teenager in connection with the killing of a beloved grocery store owner.
The police department issued a prepared statement Thursday night saying only that a minor — the same person who was called a person of interest on Tuesday — is being held in juvenile detention for investigation of aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.
Police haven’t even released the boy’s age. Several people on social media who claim to have knowledge of the arrest, however, have suggested the boy may be as young as 15.
The boy is accused of walking into the Super Grocery convenience store, 675 N. Monroe Blvd., late Sunday night and shooting and killing store owner Satnam Singh, 65.
“This incident has been shocking and tragic for our community. Much effort and many hours have been expended in the pursuit of justice for Mr. Singh and his family,” Ogden police said in their statement Thursday.
“We emphatically restate our thanks to the community for providing tips/information and video submissions in support of the investigation. It is inspiring to see people acknowledge the impact Mr. Singh made in their lives, and a reminder that we all can do the same.”
