On Christmas eve morning December 24, 2016 around 9am 81 year old grocer and grandmother Marie Buck was fatally shot 11 times by Maurice Green over a large gold chain worth between 5,000 – 10,000 allegedly stolen by her grandson.
According to Police Maurice Green intended to target Marie Buck’s grandson but when he walked up to the store and opened the door there stood the 81 year old grandmother and store owner of 41 years.
Maurice Green seeing only the 81 year old still opened fire hitting her 11 times, from the surveillance video and local tips Maurice Green was picked up Wednesday night December 28, 2016 near his home on the 5400 block of Berks Street.
Stupid and senseless murder; You kill a innocent elderly woman who has been a pillar in the community and a person whom you know; over a gold chain you think was stolen by her grandson. But instead of getting your facts straight and confronting the grandson you walk up to the store where he works and kill his grandmother instead that’s pure evil he should be shot 11 times.
