Vigil on Monday evening for gas station worker killed in shooting

A vigil is planned in Hanover on Monday evening in memory of a gas station clerk killed in a shooting earlier this month. The vigil will be held at 6 p.m. at the Exxon station at 7898 Ridge Road in Hanover, where Rajinder Kumar was shot and killed Aug. 7.

Kumar, 49, was working the overnight shift at the gas station at about 1 a.m. when a man walked into the store and shot him before making off with an unknown amount of cash, according to Anne Arundel County Police. Police have not identified a suspect and have made a public plea for tips in the case last week.

The suspect is described as a black man, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, khaki cargo shores, black gloves and black sneakers.

The reward for information in the case stands at $27,000, with $20,000 from the FBI, $5,000 from the Anne Arundel County Muslim Council and $2,000 from Metro Crime Stoppers. There also has been an effort to raise money to send Kumar's body home to his family in India.

Anyone with information is asked to call Anne Arundel homicide detectives at 410-222-8610.
