Clues Sought in Killing of 2 Store Employees

September 15, 2000

PALMDALE — Homicide detectives on Thursday were investigating the fatal shootings of two employees of a small convenience store during an apparent robbery Wednesday night.

The two men were killed at Vic's F&M Market during a holdup shortly before 7 p.m., said Sheriff's Deputy Valentine Rosario. They were Phillip Privett Jr., 30, of Palmdale and Majdy Nasry Haddad, 18, of Lancaster. Haddad's father owns the store.

Detectives, who released few details of the investigation, were trying to determine whether anything had been stolen from the store, set in an industrial strip, Rosario said.

Dozens of friends and relatives gathered at the store Thursday to mourn Haddad, a star football player who recently graduated from Lancaster High School.

"The whole football team is crushed," said Eric Polanco, 17, a former teammate who is a senior.
