South Lake Tahoe Police need your help in an ongoing murder case. They want to identify a patron who appeared on video shortly before a gas station attendant was killed.

While reviewing surveillance video, officers say they found a second person on the store's video cameras. The unidentified man was one of the last customers to interact with the victim. They say there is nothing to indicate the man in the bottom photo is a suspect. They just believe he may possibly have seen or witnessed something which could provide valuable information. 

Last week, police released video of a different man walking near the USA Gas Station on Highway 50. Police say he may have important information about 27-year-old Manpreet Ghuman Singh, the clerk who was shot and killed in the convenience store. This possible witness is a white man with light brown or blond hair. At the time, he was wearing a light-colored polo shirt.

Police say surveillance video shows a thin man approximately 5'8"-5'10" had walked into the store and after a brief encounter with the clerk, the suspect raised a handgun and shot the man. Singh fell to the floor as the suspect ran out of the store.

The suspect wore dark clothing including a black hoodie and a dark mask over his face. Police say it appears the man is light skinned and is possibly in his 20's to 40's.

No vehicle description is available.

Local businesses have contributed to the reward being offered for information leading to an arrest - which is now $8,000.

If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call South Lake Tahoe Police at 530-542-6100 or Secret Witness at 530-541-6800. Your call will remain anonymous.
