Richard Alcaraz is wanted in connection with a November 17 shooting.


Investigators need help to find a 21-year-old man they believe shot and killed a store clerk after stealing beer.

Back in November, two men walked into Paisano’s Market in Stockton and took two cases of beer. The men returned about 30 minutes later; one of the men ran up to the front of the store and fired multiple rounds, hitting Paisano’s owner, Ali Awnallah.

Stockton Police have identified 21-year-old Richard Alcaraz as one of the men, and there is a warrant out for his arrest for homicide. Investigators say Alcaraz should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the shooting on November 17th should call Stockton Police at (209) 937-8323 or Crime Stoppers at (209) 946-0600. Callers can remain anonymous.

    Image 23. Have you ever recycled a Holiday present. So,

    oft in theologic wars The disputants, I ween, Rail on in utter ignorance Of what each other mean; And

    prate about an Elephant Not one of them has seen.

    What a waste of skin this dirtball is. Made his parents proud. Legal? To murder someone over two cases of beer? Hope his short lived buzz was worth it. Maybe someone will do him in before we have to take care of him the rest of his life. Then we'll all hear about what a great boy he was and how none of this was his fault.
