Vigil held for mechanic killed in Florissant

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Friends, family, and residents of St. Louis gathered together to remember the life of a man who was killed in Florissant.

The group gathered at Montgomery Auto Parts in Florissant to remember the life of Alan Roach. Roach was killed on Thursday night after being shot while closing up his shop.

The shooting happened during a robbery, police say.

“He was just a gentle, little guy. He would give the shirt off his back,” said Paul Arman, a close friend of Roach’s. “I’ve known him for twenty years. He didn’t have any enemies.”

The Major Case Squad is asking anyone with information to call police.
