Pathmark shooting victim laid to rest
OLD BRIDGE (WABC) -- One of the two people killed by a co-worker at a New Jersey supermarket was laid to rest Wednesday.
For a final time, the family and friends of Bryan Breen gathered to say farewell.
The service was filled with emotion, with the Old Bridge Funeral Home packed by those touched by Bryan's life and troubled by the senseless way he died. The 24-year-old Pathmark employee was the victim of rage from a heartless fellow employee who had no regard for human life.
Many of the mourners were clearly touched by the words offered during the brief service. Through the sadness and pain, this tragedy has brought many members of the Old Bridge community together.
Breen was shot along with his colleague, 18-year-old Cristina LaBrutto, while they were working early Friday morning in the Pathmark on Route 9 in Old Bridge. The shooter was 23-year-old Terrance Tyler, a troubled ex-Marine who took out his wrath on the innocent victims by blasting into the store with an AK-47. He fired at the first two people he saw before taking his own life with a handgun.
A wake for LoBrutto was held Wednesday evening at Michael Hegarty Funeral Home in Old Bridge. Her funeral is Thursday morning at St. Ambrose Church.
