Witnesses say Jenicek died in the parking lot after the suspects tried to take his wallet. According to the arrest affidavit, when one of the suspects went to grab the wallet, Jenicek went for the gun and that’s when he was shot.

Jenicek’s family told CBS4 he was going to get his girlfriend’s dinner when he was killed.
