July 20, 2010

Police are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of two men who killed a Virginia man during a robbery while he was visiting the San Francisco Bay area for a job interview.

Police say 45-year-old Jing Hong Kang of Fairfax, Va., was shot around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in downtown Oakland shortly after leaving a dentist's office.

Police say a female dental hygienist was helping Kang enter directions to his hotel in a rental car's GPS system when two men approached them demanding money.

Kang died at the scene. The woman was not harmed.

The robbers escaped with some of Kang's belongings. Police say Kang, a computer engineer and father of three, had a scheduled job interview with Google Inc. on Monday.
