By: Eric Laughlin The Press Tribune
The Roseville Police Department on Tuesday released a composite sketch and surveillance photos of the man they believe shot an employee of a Roseville weight loss clinic Jan. 20. The suspect is believed to be a light complexion black or Hispanic male in his 20s, approximately 5-foot, 8-inches tall, 150 pounds, and wearing a dark colored down-type jacket and baggy blue jeans. Investigators do not believe the shooting was random, but have yet to learn why the victim was targeted. They do know the suspect was at the site of the incident prior, appearing to be waiting for the victim. Robbery is not believed to be a motive, as nothing was taken. The victim, an employee of Absolute Weight Loss Clinic at Cirby Way and Sunrise Avenue, said to be in his 50s, is still recovering from two gunshot wounds to his abdomen. He had reportedly been locking up the business at around 7:45 p.m., when the suspect approached him. Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to call Roseville Crimestoppers at (916) 783-STOP. A cash reward could apply for callers providing information leading to an arrest.
