TRAGEDY ON ALMEDA SCHOOL ROAD
See picture in previous post below.
Two cold-hearted men demanded money from the owner of AA Roofing. His wife was told to lie down on the floor. They got less than $100 and then shot Armando Alcantara numerous times and sped off in a red 1994 to 1997 regular cab pickup truck, with chrome grill and no license plates, driven by a third man. Armando worked for 20 years as a roofer before reaching his dream of owning his own business. Six years ago he started AA Roofing inside a metal container and grew in size and inventory. After keeping his business open 11 hours a day, Armando went home and did the paper work. With tears in her eyes, his wife says, “He worked too hard and loved his family so much.”
