United Coin Machine Company announced Thursday that the company will donate $5,000 to increase the reward for information about the slaying of convenience store owner Amanpreet Singh.
Singh, a member of the Sikh religious community in Las Vegas, was shot multiple times about 4:30 p.m. March 30 outside the Wells Fargo Bank near Sunset Road and Eastern Avenue. He died later that evening.
Singh’s family members presented Crime Stoppers with a $5,000 donation Tuesday in hopes of encouraging people to come forward to help solve the crime.
UCMC services 7-Eleven stores throughout Southern Nevada. Singh came to Las Vegas five years ago and owned several 7-Eleven stores across the valley.
“This was a horrific event that has not only shaken our company and our community, but the entire 7-Eleven family of owners, operators and support vendors,” Steven Arntzen, chief executive officer of UCMC, said.
Anyone with information about the case is being asked to call Metro's homicide section at (702) 828-3521 or contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or on the Web at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
