OMAHA (KPTM) – A metro grocery store is the scene of a deadly shooting for the second time.

Back in 2004, a 73-year old man was gunned down after withdrawing money from an A-T-M.

And Monday night shots were fired outside Hy-Vee near 79th and Cass again.

Police say 25-year old Randall Grimm was shot shortly before 9:00 PM.

Tuesday morning, police arrested 41-year old Sidney Andersen for the City's 7th homicide.

Neighbors recount Grimm's mannerisms before getting shot at a Hy-Vee located less than a block away from his apartment.

"He was in somewhat of a rage," said neighbor Sam Swanson. "He had this power to his face and was all googly-eyed. He was just ready to go."

Neighbors tell us Grimm was visibly upset when he left his apartment, stormed down the sidewalk and went to Hy-Vee where his girlfriend apparently worked.

"As I was leaving, he [Grimm] popped out of his apartment and says, ‘If anybody comes here looking for me, you tell them I'm ready to play.'"

Swanson said he understands Grimm irritated his girlfriend's father by "beating on her, and her dad took things into his own hands."

Omaha Police have not confirmed the relationship between Grimm and Andersen, but do say they knew each other.

Both Grimm and Andersen have had lengthy run-in's with the law.

Fox 42 News acquired court documents and found out Grimm has a four-year old daughter.

An ex-girlfriend of Grimm's who did not want to be identified said she has known him for six years and that she has "mixed emotions" about his death.

Back in 2009, she filed a protection order against him for domestic violence, claiming Grimm "spanked their daughter and there were bruises on her bottom."

Just a few years earlier in 2007, Platte County Public Defender Tim Matas confirmed that Grimm was drunk and crashed his car.

Matas said when officers arrived, Grimm became abusive, spitting in their face and kicking out patrol car windows.

Andersen apparently had similar domestic violence issues.

In 2009, Andersen also had a protection order filed against him by his wife.

She claimed he was abusive toward her on numerous occasions.

In the court documents, she claimed he pushed her, choked her and shook her to the point where she "could not breathe."

No family members were available for comment on Monday.
