On December 30th, locals gathered to honor late Adel A. Elrafei who was shot and killed on Christmas. He owned Bull Market located on the northside of Covington.
Fehnihxx Booker, a close friend to Elrafei, spoke on how the owner was more than a businessman, but a friend. Booker would come to him for advice if he needed it.
“I’m hurt, the community is hurt, it’s very troubling. I think guns and violence is terrible in our community.” Booker stated during his speech.
Bull Market will continue sales with Elrafei’s stepson, Justin Osteen, taking over the business.
