BATON ROUGE - Police identified the man found shot to death last night at a Baton Rouge tire shop, and said robbery appears to be the motive.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said Zaharan Abu Awwad, 20, was killed during the robbery at the Discount Tire store on Plank Road.

McKneely said officers were called out for the shooting at 7:09 p.m., and found Abuawwad shot multiple times and lying on the floor behind the counter.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anyone with information about the killing and robbery should call the Baton Rouge Police Homicide Division at (225) 389-4869.

News 2's Rob Krieger will have more on the investigation tonight at 5.
