Matter of record: An employee of a Highway 144 convenience store told deputies around 8 a.m. June 3 he was working when a “male subject (possibly Latino) had entered the store and started walking around the store while staring at him. (The employee) stated the subject picked up a jar of salsa and walked it over to where the (employee) was sweeping and set it down on the counter and told (the employee) to pick it up. (The employee) was confused as to what the subject was intending by asking him to do this. (He) stated the subject then proceeded to step back and spit on the ground and tell (the employee) to set the broom down. (The employee) complied and set the broom down thinking the subject was about to initiated a physical altercation.”
The employee said “the subject then proceeded outside and then another subject came in and stated to him he was going to ‘die tonight.’”
