Gas station clerk sset on fire, killed

Shortly before 7 p.m. PT, a man dressed in yellow rain gear, a black hood pulled over his head and black gloves on his hands, walked into the gas station, sprayed a flammable liquid around the store and on the likable clerk behind the counter, lit the fluid on fire, and rode off into the night on a black bicycle.

The deadly exchange — only 15 seconds long — was caught on videotape. "He literally walked in and walked back out, in a hurried motion," Lt. Troy Clegg of the Shasta County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

When authorities arrived shortly after calls came in about the gas station in Highway 299 being on fire, they found 54-year-old David Wicks badly burned.
