Kim’s wife, Suel, was involved in a shootout with a would-be armed robber in February 2016 at the store at 167th and Pacific Ave. She was shot in the side, and the robber was soon arrested.
The family had purchased a gun after yet another earlier robbery.
Then, on March 24, Kim went outside to talk to a group of men who were loitering outside the store. Mason used the opening to go inside and steal a pack of cigarettes from behind the counter.
Kim went back in, pulled a pistol from his waistband, and held Mason at gunpoint. The two struggled and Mason ran for the door, stopping to pick up the pack of cigarettes. Video shows Kim shooting Mason twice in the back and Mason collapsing in the doorway.
“He was keep reaching for my gun and I was really afraid,” Kim told Q13 News before he was arrested.
