Arcadia sushi bar employee killed in robbery


This comes from the LAT’s Homicide report:

Arcadia: Jason Wei, 42, an Asian-American man, was killed by gunfire during a restaurant robbery at 815 W. Naomi St. in Arcadia at about 9:24 p.m. Nov. 25. Arcadia Police Lt. Larry Goodman said a Latino suspect dressed in dark clothing with a dark beanie came into the Osaka Ya sushi restaurant where Wei worked, and took money from the cash register. The restaurant was still open; a few customers and other employees were inside. Goodman said they offered no resistance, and the suspect simply shot Wei for unknown reasons and fled. He was taken to a nearby Methodist hospital where he died. Arcadia police are looking for information on this case. Det. John Bonoma is at (626) 574-5166.


An Arcadia police watch commander whom I spoke to this afternoon couldn’t help with further details. He referred all questions to the homicide detectives who are not in the office late on Monday nights.
