hardware clerk stabbed to death

Daymond Agnew, 34, told investigators that Allah told him to go into the El Sobrante hardware store in Contra Costa County to help people on Sunday, prosecutors said.In the back of the store, he spraypainted his face, saying Allah favors the Raiders, or words to that effect, deputy district attorney Marty Knox said.Agnew remained in custody on Tuesday. Family members said they were devastated by his arrest.The whole family is completely stunned, Agnews aunt, Rita Fortson of St. Petersburg, Fla., told the Contra Costa Times. None of us believe he would just walk into a store and stab someone. We just think something might have snapped.Agnew also told investigators that he walked last week from his Sacramento home to a relatives house in Hercules, a trip of about 60 miles. Agnew spent Saturday night at a relatives home before awakening on Sunday and trekking to the hardware store, Knox said.The events recounted by witnesses at the store were jumbled because of the confusion and apparent randomness of the knife attack that killed 51yearold Daniel Joseph Stone, the prosecutor said.Coworkers at first thought Stone was being punched during a scuffle in the back of the store as he yelled out for someone to call 911. Knox said Agnew pursued Stone through a door and continued to stab him outside when the clerk stumbled and fell.Stone was stabbed 17 times before the attacker fled across the creek and ended up in the backyard of Richard Oliver, the owner of the hardware store, scooped up the family dog and went inside the house.Knox said family members fled and flagged down a sheriffs deputy responding to the 911 call. A bloody folding knife was found nearby. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
