Vallejo police are seeking the public's help in identifying a woman who they believe may have witnessed a robbery and fatal shooting of a man and a dog in a pawn shop last month.
The crime in question occurred just after 3 p.m. on Dec. 20 at the Pawn Advantage at 2581 Springs Road.
Police said two people were shot, one of whom was a 45-year-old man taken to a hospital with severe injuries. He survived.
However, the shop owner, identified as 49-year-old Timothy Pult, was killed. A dog was also found dead at the scene, police said.
Police are now on the lookout for a woman, who they said was driving a light-colored 2010 or new Jeep Patriot SUV. She is said to be in 30s, about 5-feet, 6-inches tall, weighing 160 lbs., and had dark hair styled in a bun.
The woman was dressed in scrub-style shirt with pink, purple and white flowers or butterflies as well as a white long-sleeved undershirt. The potential witness was also clad in dark pants with matching shoes and a crossbody purse. Her ears were pierced and she was reportedly wearing a ring on her left ring finger, according to police.
The California Pawnbrokers Association has put up a reward of up to $25,000 for information that will help police identify and arrest those responsible for the deadly crime.
People with information are asked to contact Vallejo Police Detective Scott Yates at 707-648-4533 and refer to police case 16-16710.
