SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) — The FBI has joined the search for whoever murdered a man at a gas station just a few miles away from South Lake Tahoe’s resorts.
Customers were distraught, trying to cope after a beloved store clerk is shot dead on the job.
Tiffany Davis and her sister Ashaley live just down the road from the South Lake Tahoe gas station. They came to lay flowers for a man friends identify as 28-year-old Manpreet Ghuman.
“It’s somebody in our everyday life.”
It was around 11 p.m. on Tuesday when a customer would come in and discover Manpreet shot behind the counter.
A check of video surveillance would show a light-skinned masked gunman enter the store and open fire.
The manager of the gas station says nothing was taken, but he had no idea why anyone would want to target Ghuman.
“He’s a nice guy, not like aggressive. He’s nothing to do. He’s a nice guy.”
According to his Facebook page, Ghuman was from Los Angeles and college-educated. Those in this small town he would greet every day are begging for justice.
“If you know anything if anybody knows anything, just please come forward. This man’s life was not worth whatever that other man was upset about.”
