MURRAY, Utah -- Murray residents spoke out Tuesday night at a Murray City Council meeting with concerns about crime.

Some residents say the lack of information or arrests in the murder of a convenience store clerk has left them concerned for their safety.

David Marsh was fatally shot on March 18 just after starting his shift at the Lee Mart at 5600 South and 700 West.

Residents in the area say the robbery and shooting is one of several crimes in the area that have recently occurred.

During the meeting, people expressed their frustrations with the police department to the mayor and council.

In response, Murray Police Chief Craig Burnett spoke with FOX 13, addressing those concerns and spoke for the first time about the murder of Marsh, who he says was a personal friend.
