March 30, 2010 — Tarpon Springs

Arunya Rouch, a seafood specialist for Publix who had been fired earlier in the day, returned to the store and shot and killed co-worker Gregory Janowski.

She then walked into Publix, possibly looking to shoot someone else.

Tarpon Springs Police Sgt. Michael Trill responded and the building was evacuated. Trill found Rouch near the seafood aisle and the two exchanged gunfire, with Rouch firing first. Rouch, 41, survived four gunshot wounds and was eventually found guilty of murder. Read more
