UPDATED 11:47 a.m. Wednesday
Nabil Tawab, a 37-year old father of three, died after being shot multiple times Tuesday night near his car in the parking lot of an office building at The Old Road and Valencia Boulevard.
Homicide detectives report that Tawab was found on the ground with a gunshot wound by deputies responding to an assault call at the location. Sgt. Derrick Ballentine of the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station said that the shooting was reported at approximately 6:45 p.m.
Tawab was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, where he died of his injuries.
According to detectives, Tawab and several business associates were having a holiday party inside the office building. Tawab left to get something out of his vehicle, which was parked just outside the front door. Moments later, people attending the party heard 2-3 gunshots outside and found him near his car, wounded by the gunfire.
No suspects were seen and no motive has been established. Tawab was the owner of a credit-repair company that recently moved into the building.
