tahoe gas station robbery

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.
