A Marlboro man is pleading not guilty to charges that he shot and killed a former supervisor at the Brattleboro Food Co-op.

Police say 59-year-old Richard Gagnon went to the co-op on Tuesday morning and shot to death Michael Martin, an assistant manager who had recently written an evaluation that was critical of Gagnon’s job performance.

Gagnon surrendered after the shooting, telling police he didn’t want to hurt anyone else.

The co-op is set to reopen today.
