BURNEY, CA – Police are looking for the person who walked into a California gas station and killed a 54-year-old man by setting him on fire.

Police responding to a call of a fire at the Rocky Ledge Shell Station would find the store’s clerk, David Wicks, suffering from severe burns.

Unfortunately, despite being airlifted to the hospital, Wicks would die from his injuries.

A review of the store’s video surveillance showed a masked person walking into the gas station and spraying Wicks with a liquid. As Wicks starts walking around the counter, the suspect lights him on fire and leaves him to die.

Investigators have no idea who the person is or the motive behind the seemingly unprovoked attack, so they are turning to the public for help. They are offering $10,000 for information leading to the arrest or conviction of David Wicks’ killer.

Aside from what can be seen in the surveillance footage, the only other clues they have at the moment is a bicycle that was found nearby that matched the description of the bike the killer rode away on.

They are asking anyone with any information to call the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit at 245-6135 or email mcu@co.shasta.ca.us. Anonymous tips can also be left with Secret Witness at 243-2319 or scsecretwitness.com.
