Default Salt Lake City WM gas clerk, 41 stabbed to death during confrontation with the negro


Salt Lake Maverik clerk stabbed, killed in confrontation outside store

SALT LAKE CITY A convenience store clerk was stabbed and killed early Wednesday and a friend was also stabbed during a confrontation outside the store, police said.

Tukka Gonne, of Salt Lake City, the man accused of killing the clerk, is only 21, but already has multiple arrests for assault and alcohol-related offenses.

Police have not yet released the names of the victims, but the clerk was identified by family and friends as 40-year-old Joseph "Joey" Allen.

The incident happened at Maverik, 1270 S. Main, about 3:30 a.m.

A group of four people was hanging out at the store before the confrontation occurred.

"There were some issues with them being on the property," said Salt Lake police detective Greg Wilking. "They were asked to leave and a fight broke out."

When the clerk and his friend who was with him went outside the store, the friend pulled out something that appeared to be a pipe, Wilking said.

"The surviving victim was holding a long cylindrical object, later discovered to be a metal rod, in his hand. He then swings or throws the object at the males," a Salt Lake County Jail report states. One of the victims was then knocked to the ground and a fight ensued in the parking lot.

Surveillance video shows the group of four then moving from the northeast end of the parking lot to the southwest end, the report states.

That's when Gonne pulled out a knife and stabbed the two men,Wilking said.
