FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Police say the suspect in a fatal shooting at a central California motel owed $30,000 to a company that provides stripper services.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Thursday that the victim, 23-year-old Justin Garza, was an employee of the company.

Dyer says Garza was trying to collect on the bill when he was shot multiple times by Randy Jones. The 29-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of murder. It wasn’t known if he has an attorney.

The Fresno Bee reports the shooting was recorded by surveillance cameras.

A stripper who accompanied Garza to the motel was not hurt.
