Cops Nab Va. Man after Deadly Rampage

Fox News, June 2, 2005

A man was arrested Thursday night in connection with a shooting spree that left three dead — including two shopkeepers who were gunned down in front of horrified customers by a gunman who yelled racist comments, police said.

Daniel A. Bowler was taken into custody without incident at a hotel in eastern Henrico County, police Capt. Mark Segal said. He did not immediately release further details.


Ten minutes later, the gunman entered the James Food Store, a convenience store about three miles from the housing complex. After shouting racist comments at employee Abdulrahman Aldhabhani, 43, the man shot and killed him in front of customers, police said.

Police said the gunman took cash and other items before walking next door to Poly Cleaners, where he yelled racist comments at the owner, Jong Doh, 39, before shooting him in front of witnesses.
