Outrage at the asshole who shot and killed the local gas station attendant in cold blood. We hope they find you. RIP to the fella who died, I buy my beer here sometimes. Funky little store, but no reason to kill anyone.
The South Lake Tahoe Police Department released photographs of a suspect who allegedly killed a South Lake Tahoe gas station clerk Tuesday night.
Police had only a vague description of the suspect, who wore a dark mask and hoodie, in the homicide at USA Gas at 2470 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
At 10:50 p.m. on Tuesday, a customer walked into the gas station and found the adult male clerk on the floor with blood around him. The customer called 911 and officers arrived within a minute and found the victim without a pulse, police said.
The clerk did not respond to attempts to revive him and was declared dead at the scene, police said.
Police reviewed a surveillance recording and it showed a man entered the store, had a brief encounter with the clerk and then shot him. The suspect fled as the clerk fell to the floor.
Police did not indicate if there was a robbery. They are waiting to notify next-of-kin before releasing the clerk’s name.
They ask anyone with information to call the police at 530-542-6100 or Secret Witness at 530-541-6800.
