GARLAND, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The killing of a 30-year-old clerk at a convenience store is Garland’s ninth murder of 2019.

“It doesnt make any sense, why would someone want to do this to my friend? He would give you the shirt off his back. It doesnt make no sense to me,” said family friend Yolanda Wilburn, who knew Lam as “Leon.”

Police responded to a robbery call at the Corner Food Mart in the 4400 block of West Walnut Street. When they arrived, they found Lam with a gunshot wound.

Customer James Johnston said he heard gunshots but didn’t realise the shooting came from the food mart.

“This is not a good area. Theres drugs floating around. When the drugs are around, thats bad business,” said Johnston.

The suspects are described as approximately 57- 58 tall, thin build, wearing hoodies.
