Martha Sanchez - Store Clerk murdered in South Los Angeles, California

Maria Sanchez, age 39, died on September 17, 2013, in South Los Angeles, California.

Maria was working as a clerk at the Happy Bargain 99 Cents store at 74th Street and Broadway. She was closing up shop. A man entered the store between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. and shot Maria multiple times.

This is believed to be a botched robbery attempt. She did not resist the robber.

A customer found Maria about 9:00 p.m. and Martha was given vigorous first aid and rushed to a local hospital but was pronounced deceased.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 30's. If you have any information about his incident, you're urged to contact the LAPD's 77th Division at (213) 485-4164. You can also call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.

Residents admit the area does have its problems, but the store is just three blocks away from the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Street headquarters building. The suspect, who was last seen running south, could have run right by the station to make his escape.

People in the district are in mourning that someone would pointlessly shoot this woman who had worked at the store for one year.

Martha is described as a friendly, kind and helpful woman who was known for her
Mary, pray for Martha
lenience toward customers. If a customer was short on cash, she sometimes let them pay later.

Martha is survived by many loving friends and relatives including her husband and four daughters and a son. Her children are between the ages of 19 and 3.

Pray for justice for Martha. 

If you know anything about this crime, please contact the Los Angeles Police.

Pray for all who die as result of going to work.

God save us from the Lost Ones who stalk the Earth stealing away life. They are killing us, Father. 

Pray that Martha is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
