Roseville police have released the identity of the suspect in the fatal Monday afternoon shooting of a waitress at House of Oliver restaurant.
48-year-old Johnnie Jordan is accused of fatally shooting 51-year-old Vitalina ‘Vita’ Joga just before 3:30 PM on the 3000 block of Douglas Boulevard. Police had responded to the scene to find Joga suffering from life-threatening injuries, from which she ultimately passed away.
According to reports, Joga had had a restraining order against Jordan, who was her ex-fiance.
Restaurant owner Matthew Oliver told KCRA that Jordan had burst into the restaurant and, when asked to leave, drew a gun and opened fire. He then fled the restaurant but was apprehended by police later the same day.
Joga, who’d worked at House of Oliver for seven years and was well-liked by her coworkers, reportedly leaves behind a 16-year-old daughter.
The restaurant was closed for the day Tuesday in Joga’s honor.
