store clerk shot to death... and customers keep shopping

This is a sad, ridiculous story out of Indiana. Sad, because it involves a man getting shot to death. Ridiculous, because bystanders saw the whole thing and didn't do a damn thing: Store Clerk Murdered; Customers Keep Shopping.

According to Gary Police, surveillance cameras caught one of four suspects bursting into a convenience store booth and shooting 26-year-old clerk Gurjeet Singh in the neck, killing him.

But the cameras also caught several bystanders milling around near the door almost the whole time. According to police, there were several customers walking around the store after the crime, but only one actually called for help.

There's a guy laying there, bleeding to death, and everyone in the mini-mart basically ignores him. People apparently just walked in and out of the store and didn't call police. It didn't occur to anyone to dial 911 or even check to see if he was okay. Or maybe they just didn't care.
