SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A fundraiser is being held Tuesday to support the family of a San Diego donut shop owner who died after being attacked during a home invasion.

Randy Taing, 58, died several days after San Diego police said he was viciously attacked in his Clairemont home on April 8 by an unknown person. Police said the person linked to the incident stole Taing’s safe.

Police have not identified or located the person suspected in Taing’s death.

Taing’s death shocked the community, especially those who visit the popular donut shop he owns, Rose Donuts (5201 Linda Vista Rd., Ste. 100).

Simsim Outstanding Shawarma restaurant (7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.) is donating half of Tuesday’s proceeds to Taing’s family.

A GoFundMe account has also been established to help the Taing family.
