CLOVIS, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A man accused of shooting a store clerk at a Clovis smoke shop is now being charged with homicide after the victim passed away from her injuries on Friday, according to Clovis Police Department officials.
Just before 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, officers responded to report of a shooting at Clovis Hookah & Cigarettes near Shaw and Fowler avenues.
