Walmart.  Save money.  Die faster.

UPDATE (3/3/14):   The man was shot to death with a sawed off shotgun, by two others.  The three had met in the parking lot in a drug deal, and the shooters made off with stolen marijuana.

From an article:
Vincent Muzac, 24, of Alameda was found shot to death in the parking lot of the store at 8400 Edgewater Dr. at 12:35 p.m. Dec. 22.
Police determined that Shawndale Boyd, 30, of Hayward and Damion Sleugh, 26, of Oakland had hatched a plan to rob Muzac of a "large quantity of marijuana," Oakland police Officer Phong Tran wrote in court documents.
After Muzac showed up in the parking lot, Boyd, who has a previous conviction for selling cocaine, directed him to Sleugh, who shot the victim before both men fled with the stolen pot, Tran wrote.
Police found a loaded, 12-gauge shotgun with a sawed-off barrel in Sleugh's apartment, police said.

Sleugh was already a felon.
