Rabadi was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators determined the motive for the shooting appears to have been a robbery. San Bernardino police released black-and-white, low-resolution security video of two men approaching the store’s counter, where one took out a gun and pointed it at the clerk, and the second jumped the counter.

    Maybe they can riot because 2 of their poor babies were involved in a robbery. They could also sue since the suspects had their pictures taken without their permission
