PARAMOUNT (CNS) — The Coroner’s Office on Saturday released the name of a 38-year-old man who was shot dead dur­ing an apparent rob­bery out­side a bank in a shop­ping center.

The shooting victim was identified as Abd Alla Thabet, according to the coroner’s office.

Thabet was pronounced dead at the scene of the shoot­ing, which occurred just before 11 a.m. Friday in the 15900 block of Par­a­mount Boulevard, the Sher­iff’s Information Bureau reported.

The shooting appeared to have occurred as Tha­bet struggled with two men dur­ing a robbery, al­though that has not been con­firmed, Sheriff’s Hom­ic­ide Bu­reau Lt. Charles Cal­der­aro told reporters.

Thabet was a well-known area businessman who fre­quently used the Bank of America branch near the shooting scene, ac­cording to ABC7.
