BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The family of Corey Michael Fisher says they are at a loss for words. Fisher, 31, died Sunday night after being shot in the parking lot of the Rosedale Inn and now his family is trying to bring his body back to Michigan.
According to an online post written by his sister-in-law Samantha, Fisher was a goofy father of four girls who was visiting California when he was killed.
"He is going to be missed more than he could ever of known," she said.
The Bakersfield Police Department is investigating the shooting and has not yet identified a suspect. Witnesses at the scene, however, told police Fisher was seen arguing with the suspect in the parking lot of the inn around 10:49 p.m. Sunday. Witnesses stated during the argument the suspect took out a gun and fired it at Fisher.
It was then reported the suspect and woman fled west through the parking lot in a vehicle, described as a dark-colored 1999-2004 model Ford Crown Victoria.
