LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – When the company refused to release his rental car, a client at a tow lot opened fire, with fatal results. A worker was killed in the incident on Tuesday in the Arts District. A vigil in his honor was held on Friday night.
“We just had a simple, very happy life… and it’s just gone now for nothing,” said Angela Dominguez, Jonet Dominguez’s wife.
Jonet’s priorities in life were his family and his religion.
“He loved the lord. He lived his life for the lord. After that was his family,” explained Angela. Now, none of his ten children have a father. His wife Angela revealed that her children are still in the dark.
“For my younger ones, I had to have my pastor come and help me break the news to them because I just couldn’t do it,” Angela said.
Friday night, coworkers, family members, and friends gathered to pray and light candles. Parking down the roadway, a row of tow trucks’ lights blazed upward.
“He is with God right now… he is looking from heaven, looking to us,” said
Work colleague Luis De La Cruz. De La Cruz referred to Jonet as a brother figure.
Currently, Jaton Herder is accused of killing Jonet. After the shooting, according to the police, he ran away, but a multi-jurisdictional task team was able to find him in Henderson and apprehend him.
For Jonet’s family, a GoFundMe page has been created.
