ALBEMARLE, N.C. - B&G Coins has gone back to being a quiet corner shop.

Dozens of people gathered there Monday night to express their condolences and grieve the loss of the shop's owner, Roger Gibson.

They huddled around his store on Concord Road in Albemarle, holding candles and listening to a pastor speak about Gibson.

It was at his shop Thursday night that police said a man came into his store and shot and killed the 81-year-old owner and ransacked the place before taking off with his truck.

Friends of Gibson at the vigil said if that man only knew Gibson, maybe he wouldn't have taken his search for valuables that far.

Police are still looking for the shooter who killed Gibson.
