At 6:15 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2019, the LVMPD emergency number received an alert call informing them of a robbery with gunshots at a convenience store.

The agents showed up at the Stateside Express gas station, 905 North Las Vegas Boulevard, near the corner of East Washington Avenue.

However, when the agents arrived at the scene they discovered that the victim of the shots had been the alleged thief, an African American man who was lying dead on the cement of the gas station.

The store employee, Antunez-García, and the business manager, stayed at the scene to tell the authorities everything that had happened.

According to Antunez-García, who always cooperated with the police, moments before two people entered the business and left carrying several cases of beer without paying for them. One was a woman and the other a man.
