VICTORVILLE (CBSLA.com) — Detectives Monday were investigating the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old convenience store clerk in San Bernardino County.
Authorities were alerted around 10:40 p.m. Sunday to a shooting at an AMPM store on Civic and Roy Rodgers drives in Victorville, the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department said.
When deputies arrived, they found store clerk Daniel Olivera, who had just ended his shift, dead at the scene.
“The circumstances are very strange. He’s standing out here, he’s several feet from the security guard, they’re having a conversation, there’s no altercation going on and suddenly he’s shot,” spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said.
Investigators spent hours interviewing witnesses in the store and combing a vacant lot nearby, but turned up no clues or leads.
Olivera, who worked at the AMPM for two years, was engaged and the father of four children.
“He left at 2 p.m. . . . and said I’ll be back at 10 o’clock and have dinner ready for me,” fiancé Janet Cruz said. “I was waiting all night with his dinner plate, looking out the window and he never came home.”
Sheriff’s officials say they have no suspects.
