As the courier entered the market, he was attacked by a lone suspect. The courier fell to the ground and the suspect fled with the “coal bag” containing cash. The courier chased the suspect on foot and fired two rounds at him as he entered and fled in a green 1997 Isuzu Trooper.

LAPD Robbery-Homicide Detectives and the business owners will announce a $30,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspect.
