TEMECULA, Calif. — A candlelight vigil was held Sunday night in Temecula to honor Larry Robinson, a Fallbrook musician who was brutally beaten during a robbery at the music store where he worked.
Hundreds of friends and fans packed the parking lot in front of Pete’s Music in Old Town Temecula where Robinson, 64, was found bound and bloodied Friday night around 7:30 p.m.
“Everybody is grief-stricken – just wracked with sorrow and anger. It’s just total sadness,” said store owner Pete Surowski.
Those who attended the vigil described Robinson as a smooth singer-songwriter and an easy-going, peaceful man.
Surowski said money and several guitars were stolen in the robbery. He hopes those items will lead investigators to Robinson’s killer or killers.
As of Sunday, no suspect descriptions have been given.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
