The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has released the name of the Edmonds man who died after being shot while working at the 7-11 store along Highway 99 Friday, Feb. 21.

The man was identified as Nagendiram Kandasamy and the manner of death was a gunshot wound, the medical examiner’s office said.
