CLT Community Shows Support in Reopening of Brooks Sandwich Shop

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For the first time since Scott Brooks was shot and killed outside the restaurant he co-owned with his twin brothers, Brooks Sandwich House is preparing to reopen Saturday in Charlotte's NoDa neighborhood.

For the past two months, the popular restaurant had become a popular place for people to grieve and remember.

"He didn't care what you did, what color you were, it was just quality in the heart," David Brooks told WCNC Charlotte Friday remembering his brother.

David Brooks has suffered deeply. The two suspects wanted for the killing of his brother remain at large.

Despite the ongoing investigation, David said the outpouring of community support has been overwhelming.

It's time for Brooks to reopen

The open sign at Brooks Sandwich House flipped on Saturday at 10 a.m.

"1,500 people said they're going to show up, laughs, lets leave it at that, lets go!"

The restaurant is normally not open on Saturdays, but it will be open on February 1. Another change: Brooks Sandwich House will not be serving breakfast anymore. The restaurant will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday going forward.
