SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a security guard was shot and killed trying to stop a pair of men stealing cigars from a Northern California liquor store.

KCBS-Radio reported on Monday (https://cbsloc.al/1AexgoT ) that police are reviewing surveillance video from the Saturday night shooting but have made no arrests. Police identified the victim as 34-year-old Manuel Alvarez Zuniga.

Liquor store owner Sonny Gia says two men tried to steal Swisher Sweets Cigars, and they ran to a nearby car.

He says Zuniga chased after the men, and one of them opened fire, killing Zuniga.

Gia says Zuniga worked as a security guard for the Bboss Nightclub next door, but he also kept an eye on the liquor store.

Police say they continue to investigate but have not released a description of the suspects.
