Anthony Victor Pineda - a security guard killed during a robbery in San Bernardino, California

Anthony Victor Pineda
Anthony Victor Pineda, age 25, of Rowland Heights, California, died on February 16, 2015, at a marijuana dispensing store in San Bernardino, California.

The store is in a small strip-mall.

Anthony was called Tony by many of his friends and relatives.

At about 10:00 p.m., Anthony was working as a security guard at the store when he was shot and killed by two armed men who were robbing the place. Anthony may have wounded one of the robbers in an exchange of gunfire.

Marijuana dispensing stores are illegal in San Bernardino. The staff members who work at the store have refused to help the Police with any information. The police had to break down the doors to even get into the place where they found Anthony Pineda deceased. The store's owners had to be forced by court order to provide the videotapes of the confrontation.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact Detective Joshua Cunningham at (909) 384-5745 or Sgt. Carl Williams at (909) 693-6665.

We put this question to the thieves who killed Anthony: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

Anthony graduated from Ontario High School. In prior years he had worked as an
Mary, pray for Anthony and
for those who have lost him
ocean lifeguard for Huntington Beach. It was reported that during his time as a lifeguard he had saved several lives. He loved water polo and promoted the sport on the Internet. He was scheduled to work as a security guard at the upcoming 2015 Academy Awards ceremony.

Friends stated that Anthony had a love of people and a zest for life. He was pleasant and energetic. He was articulate, intelligent and ambitious. He was respectful and hard-working. He had plans for the future.

Anthony's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He will be forever mourned.

Anthony is survived by many loving friends and family members who will forever miss him.

Pray for all who go to work and who die there.

Pray for all who die young. They barely had a chance to live.

Pray that Anthony Pineda is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
