$11,000 Reward in Woodbridge Grocery Store Murder

A reward for information in the fatal shooting of a woman inside a Prince William County grocery store has been increased to $11,000, News4's Kristin Wright reported.

At a press conference Wednesday in Manassas, the FBI -- which is assisting the investigation -- announced it is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. Prince William police are also offering a $1,000 reward through their Crime Solvers program.

"We need assistance from the public," the FBI said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon. "Someone knows who did this."

Two women were shot in the upper body inside Platanillos Grocery and Jewelry in the 14000 block of Jefferson Davis Highway in Woodbridge about 9 p.m. Feb. 21.

Glenda Marisol Coca-Romero, 21, died at the store. The other woman, a 42-year-old from Woodbridge, was taken to a hospital. Both were employees of the store.

Surveillance video showed three men dressed in black clothes entering the store, running toward the right and then immediately running back out of the store. Nothing was taken, police said.

A customer and another employee in the store at the time were unharmed.

Coca-Romero's father is now caring for her 10-month-old daughter.

Anyone with information about the case should call Crime Solvers at 703-670-3700 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
