The agency says Michael Moser, a 66-year-old Palm Springs resident, was shot and killed at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets on Thursday, March 24, just before 7 p.m.

Moser stopped at the mall to charge his vehicle and get coffee on his way home, according to a close business friend.

Moser's career took him across the nation, including Beverly Hills, South Coast Plaza, New York City and Hawaii.

"People are gonna always remember the joy that he brought, the smile that he brought out of you, and I think it's going to be something that's truly going to be missed," friend Chris Gialanella told Eyewitness News back in March. "Michael was such a divine person."

Trice was booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center.

Authorities did not reveal further details about Trice's arrest but urge anyone with information regarding this ongoing investigation to contact the Riverside County Sheriff's Department at (951) 922-7100, or Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955-2777.
