BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Two people were shot to death inside First Reliable medical marijuana collective on the 200 block of Chester Avenue, according to police.

The shooting occurred just before 10 a.m. Wednesday. Police wouldn't say how the shooting unfolded.

A woman found in the gathering outside the dispensary following the shooting identified herself as Cristina Lutrul and said one of the men shot was her step-brother, 23-year-old Devin Daniels. The coroner's office later confirmed the identity.

"Devin was a good guy," an emotional Lutrul said.

Eyewitness News also spoke with Daniels' parents at the scene, but they declined an on-camera interview.

Lutrul said her brother worked at the dispensary.

"He wasn't gang-banging. He wasn't out there in these streets, running around doing crazy stuff," Lutrul said. "He was a man about his children and about working."

Lutrul said Daniels had three daughters.

A man at the scene, security guard Israel Patterson, identified the second person shot as a 55-year-old man named simply Tony. The coroner's office later identified him as Tony Conrad Sherman, of Los Angeles.

"He was like an uncle to me," Patterson said about Sherman.

Police said the shooter may left the shop in a dark-colored SUV, driven by a man with a woman possibly in the vehicle.

Officers also interviewed a possible witness who was in the back of the collective at the time of the shooting. Multiple security cameras at the dispensary might have recorded the events.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to call the police department at (661) 327-7111 or the case detective at 326-3514.
