Restaurant general manager killed in attempted robbery identified
Friday, June 3, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY (WIS) - Deputies are searching for the person or people who shot and killed the general manager of a pizzeria in Northeast Columbia Thursday night.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts identified the worker as 34-year-old Steven A. Fowler of Irmo. Richland County Deputy Curtis Wilson said Fowler was closing the Papa John's Restaurant at 1008 Two Notch Road when someone came in and tried to rob the place.

Fowler was shot and was found deceased in his car around 12:30 a.m. Friday. Watts said Fowler died at the scene from complications of a gunshot wound to the chest.

The owner of the franchise, Don Bower, said Friday afternoon that Fowler was the general manager of the location and had been with the company for 10 years. Bower brought in grief counselors to speak with employees.

Wilson says investigators don't know how many people were involved. Fowler was the only person in the pizzeria.
