A grandfather, Jonathan Mauk, was fatally shot by Shawntece Norton in a Walmart parking lot in Highland, California, following a minor fender bender.

Mauk was shot while trying to apologize for the collision, resulting in his death.

Matthew Mauk, the victim’s oldest son, said, “He’s been a solid foundation for all of us. The loss is immeasurable.”

“I can’t even put into words why that happened or what would go through a person’s mind to make that seem like an acceptable action. None of it makes sense,” he continued.

Capt. Nelson Carrington said, “For whatever reason, the victim stopped and slowly backed his vehicle up, and that’s when he had a collision with the suspect’s vehicle.”

Matthew Mauk said, “From what witnesses told me, my dad felt responsible. He was the one to blame, so he got out of the car to apologize and that is when the other person shot him.”

“There is a scratch on the fender. There is not a dent, there is no real damage. There is a scratch. That is the extent of the collision that he lost his life over,” explained the grieving son.

Mauk promised, “We’ll be there for every single court hearing. Anything that has to do with this incident, we’re going to be there. We’re going to be vocal, we’re going to talk about it.”.

Norton has been arrested and charged with murder.

Mauk’s family is devastated by the loss and seeks justice for his death.
