One suspect is described as a male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and gray pants, and a woman wearing a printed hooded shirt or sweatshirt, along with white pants and white tennis shoes.

It is believed the man was the shooter, attacking 45-year-old Jing Hong Kang of Fairfax, Va. around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in downtown Oakland.

Police say a female dental hygienist was helping Kang enter directions to his hotel in a rental car’s GPS system when two men approached them demanding money.

Kang died at the scene. The woman was not harmed.

The robbers escaped with only $17.

Police say Kang, a computer engineer and father of three, had a scheduled job interview with Google Inc. on Monday.
