Domino's Fundraiser For Slain Employee

San Bernardino Police Department

Nelly Kantun, 39, was allegedly shot and killed by her boyfriend on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 at the Domino's Pizza parlor where she worked.

The Domino’s pizza parlor where a mother of three was killed last week is holding a fundraiser to help cover the costs of the funeral.

Nelly Kantun, 39, was allegedly shot and killed by her boyfriend while working at the Domino’s Pizza located at 1644 E. Highland Ave. in San Bernardino last Wednesday.

"Help us celebrate Nelly’s life by visiting her store," reads a flyer sent in to NBC4.

The flyer states that all sales made at that location today - Wednesday, Feb. 19 – will be donated to Nelly’s Memorial Fund.

Kantun was shot just before noon last Wednesday at the Domino’s Pizza restaurant where she worked. She was found in a pool of blood outside the front door, officials said.

The victim’s boyfriend, 55-year-old Pedro Duquesne, was arrested in connection with the death.
The two had been arguing before the suspect allegedly went into the store with a pistol and started shooting as onlookers watched in horror, police said.

After the shooting, Duquesne nonchalantly walked away, got into his car and drove off, a witness said.
Police arrested him later that day after several hours of searching.
