Employee At El Monte Jack In The Box Shot, Killed During Robbery
A Jack in the Box employee was fatally shot during a robbery on Friday night at one of the restaurant's locations in El Monte, according to KTLA. Police report that the suspect was wearing a mask during the robbery, and has not been apprehended.
This happened at about 7:50 p.m. on Friday in the 9200 block of Flair Drive. The restaurant was filled with customers ordering and eating food. The suspect entered the restaurant wearing a Halloween mask, jumped over the restaurant's front counter and demanded cash from the register.
No money was taken, and it's unknown why the suspect chose to open fire on the restaurant employee, according to KABC. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died.
Though the restaurant is located in a busy shopping center, close to Rosemead Boulevard, no description of either the suspect or his vehicle are available at this time. The victim is described only as a Hispanic male.
Investigators from both the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and El Monte Police are investigating the shooting. Anyone with more information is urged to contact the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
