HAYWARD -- A jewelry store employee found with a fatal gunshot wound at the business last week has been identified as a Tracy man, according to the Alameda County Coroner's Office.
Romiro Espinoza Rosas, 53, died Aug. 23 inside Espinoza Jewelry & Boutique, a coroner's spokesman said Tuesday.
Rosas, a staffer at the store at 655 West Tennyson Road, was found when officers responded to the store at about 3:50 p.m. after receiving a 911 call, Sgt. Eric Melendez.
Officers attempted to revive him but were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
