Two fatally shot, one injured in Compton auto shop robbery

Two employees of a Compton auto shop were fatally shot and a third injured after a group of men tried to rob the store, authorities said Tuesday.

Deputies responded to a burglary-in-progress call just before 8 p.m. Monday at Custom City Auto in the 300 block of North Long Beach Boulevard, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. David Infante.

When deputies arrived, they found three workers inside with gunshot wounds, and they saw a green van matching a description of the suspects’ vehicle driving away.

Deputies pulled the van over a few blocks away at Ward Avenue and Compton Boulevard, and, after a brief foot pursuit, arrested the six men inside.

Five of the men were questioned in connection with the robbery and killings. One, however, became unresponsive in the back of a patrol car and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead of an apparent heart attack.

Two workers were pronounced dead at the scene and a third was sent to the hospital. Authorities had not yet identified the victims. Calls to the auto shop early Tuesday went unanswered.

    How sad all you fools are not focusing on the real situation here. A little 5 year old girl lost her dad to these bastards who wanted a few bucks. My heart goes out to Mrs Robins & the family of Mr.Vance Dean.
