PHOENIX Issa Said Saleh (D.O.B. 04/15/1954) was sentenced today to 10 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections for one count of aggravated assault, a dangerous felony, followed by 3 years of supervised probation for a second count of aggravated assault, a non-dangerous felony.
On October 26, 2015 Saleh went to the convenience store that he had been recently fired from, which was owned by a family member. Once inside Saleh shot four times at the owner who was helping a customer behind the counter. The victim was stuck once in each shoulder at close range, but none of the injuries were life threatening. After the shooting Saleh remained at the store until officers took him into custody.
“The defendant showed a total disregard for the innocent lives around him as soon as he began shooting multiple times inside the convenience store,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “This sentence is fitting for the chaos the defendant’s decisions created that day,” he added.
