Police ID man killed in restroom

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police Monday identified a man shot to death last week in a Shell gas station bathroom on New Hope Road.

Jaime Vasquez Lopez, 32, of Lawrenceville, died of a single gunshot last Thursday in the men's bathroom, the victim of a fight that escalated into gunfire, Lawrenceville police said.

Customers told police a man, who is either black or Hispanic, ran from the bathroom, crossed the Shell parking lot and then left in a large SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer or Expedition that is either blue or green, driven by a female.

As of Monday, police have made no arrests or identified suspects, said Lawrenceville police spokesman Capt. Greg Vaughn.

"I don't think (investigators) have got much more," Vaughn said.

An official said the slaying is the first homicide in incorporated Lawrenceville in 2007.

The gas station reopened for business Friday morning.
