JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The staff at Mojo No. 4 is thanking the community for its support after a deadly shooting.
A gunman walked into the restaurant Monday morning and demanded money from 53-year-old Robert Sutton, who worked for Lumley's Exhaust Cleaning. He and his colleague, Tyler Lumley, were cleaning the exhaust system at the restaurant.
Sutton was shot and killed. The gunman ran off.
The restaurant released this statement Tuesday:
"The Mojo family sends our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Robert Sutton along with everyone at Lumley's Exhaust Cleaning. While he was not directly employed by Mojo, we have had a business relationship with the Lumley's for over ten years (Robert had been employed for five years) and consider them part of our family.
"This appears to have been a freak occurrence perpetrated by a disturbed individual -- his actions are truly reprehensible and senseless.
"We would like to thank the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for their hard work and professionalism -- we are confident they will quickly bring to justice the person responsible for this tragedy.
"We also would like to thank our neighboring businesses for their show of support, as well as our many loyal customers who have called, emailed and texted to express support and concern."
