The police did not provide any description of the killers, but the media speculated that the robbers were trying to steal the catalytic converter, as a similar incident was reported at the same time.

Later, the actor's mother told ABC7 that at first her son thought his car was being towed and approached the man to find out why. Then the suspect looked up and opened fire. At the time, the robber was wearing a mask.

"Not just a talented actor who was dedicated to his work, but also a real moral example for everyone who knew him. He stood for hard work, perseverance and never gave up. In the ups and downs of a difficult profession, he always kept his chin up and continued to strive for the best," his agent David Schaul described the deceased in a conversation with People.
