PHOENIX - Four months after their father was gunned down outside of a Walmart , two women continue to pray that his killer will be found.
Pete Marquez, 47, a manager at the Walmart near 75th Avenue and McDowell Road, was gunned down while chasing a robber on April 7.
Employees were collecting cash from the store's registers and placing it in a shopping cart when a man with a handgun came up and told them he was robbing them, said Phoenix police.
The gunman grabbed the cart and began pushing it out of the store as Marquez and other employees were alerted to the robbery.
As they approached the robber with the cart, the suspect pointed his gun at both individuals and shot Marquez in the chest.
Marquez was taken to the hospital where he died.
“If you were in our shoes, you’d want somebody to come forward for you,” said his daughter, Monica Marquez.
Monica and her sister Mallory told ABC15 that every time their cell phone rings with an "unknown caller" they hope it will be the police saying they’ve made an arrest.
“If you have a heart, come forward,” Mallory pleaded.
A $1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who has information that leads to an arrest or indictment.
Police provided store surveillance photos, and anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stop at 602-262-6161 or Violent Crimes at 602-262-6141.
