The shoe store employee killed during a robbery at the Arlington store on Tuesday was shot in the head, the Tarrant County medical examiner reported Friday.

Police found Randy Pacheco, 23, of Dallas dead in the rear of the Red Wing Shoes store in the 3100 block of South Cooper Street.

The Red Wing Shoe Co. has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the assailant.
