It's been a week since Nelly Kantun was shot to death at a Domino's Pizza store where she'd worked nearly two decades. A week after the shooting inside the San Bernardino store, and they're making pizzas once again. But it's hardly business as usual. Everyone there was a volunteer on Wednesday.

The store owner said all the money made Wednesday will go to a memorial fund for Kantun, 39, who was allegedly gunned down by her ex-boyfriend, 55-year old Pedro Duquesne.

Kantun's sister, Daniela Busald and other family members were at the store helping with the fundraiser on Wednesday.

People from all across the community showed up to buy a pizza, even people who didn't know the victim.

Doyle La Mountain, the store's owner said it's been a hard week for everyone at the store. He hopes Wednesday's fundraiser will help the family move forward by showing just how much Nelly Kantun was loved.
