Wells Fargo Bank is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible in the shooting death of a customer at one of the bank's automated teller machines in Victorville early Sunday.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department detectives are continuing to investigate the death of Duane Lee Murley, 56, who was found in his Chevrolet truck, dead of gunshot wounds, in a parking lot near the intersection of Hesperia and Silica roads shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday, according to a Sheriff’s Department report.

Murley had gone to a Wells Fargo ATM minutes before, officials said. After climbing into his truck, detectives said they believe, Murley was confronted by someone and shot. His truck then traveled a short distance and stopped, they said.

Deputies were called to the scene with a report of a traffic accident and found Murley's body in his truck, officials said.

Anyone who was in the area of Hesperia and Silica roads on Sunday between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., and may have information in the case, is asked to call detectives at (909) 387-3589.
