Last weekend, a clerk was shot at Trader Joe's in Eagle Rock. Now we're hearing of yet another grocery store incident from back on May 23rd. The Beverly Hills Courier reported that a North Hollywood man took a large knife, perhaps a machete, and "inflicted several wounds" on another man in the parking garage. Gustavo Menjivar-Gutierrez, 32, fled but was later arrested. He apparently had an on-going dispute with the victim, described as a transient, who was treated and released from the hospital.
