A Spring Valley man was shot and killed outside a grocery store last week and now, San Diego County Sheriff's Department investigators are looking for any information to find the person responsible. 

Aurice J. Turk, 25, of Spring Valley died from a gunshot wound he suffered on Jan. 5, outside of a grocery store at Campo Road and Bonita Street.
