EL CAJON Two people working at a liquor store in a Broadway strip mall were shot to death killed by single shots in the back of the head inside the store late Wednesday night in what police described as a robbery gone bad.
The body of one of the victims in the liquor store shooting is removed Thursday morning. A cousin of one of the victims discovered the man and woman face-down and bleeding inside Granada Liquor, on Broadway near Mollison Avenue, when he arrived at the liquor store to check on them around 11:30 p.m., said police Sgt. Chuck Merino.
Merino said both had been shot at least once in the back of the head.
The store's two cash registers both had been emptied, but police weren't sure whether the killer had emptied them or the cash had already been removed by the employees. The store normally closes at 11 p.m., Merino said.
She described the woman as a well-liked 22-year-old who was very active at the Saint Peter Chaldean Catholic Cathedral where she worked with a youth group and taught Catechism classes. She would've turned 23 on Easter Sunday.
According to Mattia, the other victim was also in his twenties and had arrived in the United States from Iraq three to six months ago. He was working two jobs to save enough money to bring the rest of his family to this country.

Nation of Islam graduates to murder instead of vandalism now ?
The Chaldeans run liquor stores all over San Diego. And the Cambodians seem to be the donut shop owners. Interesting how a particular group will suddenly come to dominate a specific type of business.
The Chaldeans are good, hardworking folks. I hope whoever did this gets a bullet to HIS head.
Could be, but more likely a simple robbery. Apparently, lots of cash on hand on the first of the month. We will see. I can't imagine making that phone call to Iraq and explaining to the family.
I bet the Chaldeans are working on that right now. They are tough, and stick together.
"I hope whoever did this gets a bullet to HIS head."
I hope so too.
Some of the nicest people I met in San Diego were Chaldean. My male hairdresser, the best one I ever had, was Chaldean. I still go see him when I'm in San Diego.
Coat the bullet with pig fat.
I've hated that phrase from the day I first heard it. A killing is not the result of something that the perp decided was the wrong thing to do. Armed robbery,unless armed with a pez dispenser,is bad
But it was the kind of thinking that our immigration policy was based on until the 1960's. Thanks, Ted.
Alot of the Iraqi Christians who came here, and mostly settled in Michigan, were very highly educated Iraqi's. My hairdresser was a great businessman. He owned the salon and when I left, was opening a middle-eastern restaurant in the same shopping center. One of this hairdressers was a vet in Iraq.
This is a mooslem hit. I hope the cops are looking for mooslem perps.
That sounds very much like the approach taken by many Chinese immigrants. It's well-suited to groups who have a lot of cohesion due to familial and social ties. Screw up, squander the funds, or don't pay them back and you'll digrace not only yourself but your entire family.
