A security guard who was shot to death at an East Oakland auto parts store over the weekend was remembered today as a good worker.Bounhom Manyvong, 59, “was a good employee,” said Kevin Smith, the senior vice president at St. Moritz Security Services, where Manyvong worked. According to Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason, Manyvong was shot at about 7 p.m. Saturday at the AutoZone store at 1011 International Blvd. He was then taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:08 p.m. Saturday.Thomason said there aren’t any new details today on the investigation into the shooting. Anyone with information about the incident should call the homicide section at (510) 238-3821, he said.Smith said Manyvong normally worked at the AutoZone store at the Eastmont Town Center at 73rd and Bancroft avenues but he was asked to work at the location at 1011 International Blvd., which is about three miles away,because the security guard who was scheduled to work there called in sick.Manyvong is survived by his wife and three sons, one of whom is in the military,according to Smith.”The family is very upset right now,” Smith said.A memorial fund is being set up for Manyvong’s family but the details will be announced later, he said.About 50 candles are in front of the AutoZone store at 1011 International Blvd. as a memorial for Manyvong. However, a security guard at the store said management isn’t allowing reporters to go inside the store.
