A woman is speaking out after her father was shot and killed at an auto parts store in Detroit.
DETROIT (WXYZ) - "They had no reason to take my daddy," said Jaime Haller-Sharpe.
Haller-Sharpe's father was shot and killed during a robbery at an O'Reilly Auto Parts store on Schaeffer on Detroit's west side.
Her father, a Vietnam veteran and retired General Motors plant worker, was a manager at the store to just keep busy during retirement, according to family.

Police say two women entered the store Wednesday evening, went to the cashier and demanded money. That's when James Haller Jr. walked out. Police say one of the women then shot him.
He was rushed to the hospital where he later died.
“Please turn them in, turn them in because he had family, he had kids, he had grandkids, he had great grandkids," said Haller-Sharpe.
Police are also looking for the getaway driver.
