Officials ID Murdered Liquor Store Clerk In Long Beach

LONG BEACH (AP) — Long Beach police are seeking two men who they say shot and killed a liquor store clerk during an attempted robbery.

Police Sgt. Rico Fernandez said in a statement Sunday that Phouma Sor was shot at P&B Liquor Jr. Market.

Fernandez says officers received a call of shots fired Saturday night and they arrived to find the 53-year-old Cambodian immigrant with a gunshot wound.

Sor was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead.

Fernandez says the initial investigation has found that two men entered the store with the intent to rob it, and one of them shot Sor. It is not clear if any money was taken.

No arrests have been made and no suspects named.
