Sad Day For Industry: Kentucky Car Wash Manager Shot Dead During Home Invasion

The manager of Goo Goo Car Wash in Lexington, Kentucky, died around 4:50 a.m. Sunday after two armed men broke into his home, according to local news reports.

Darnell Bates, 36, was promoted to general manager just two weeks before he died and worked at the car wash for five years. His friend, a fellow car wash employee, told the news station that he believes the gunmen had intended to rob Bates but shot him in the back after Bates began to fight back.

Police are still looking for suspects, but they have little information other than that the killers were wearing black when they entered the home.

Bates leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter. Goo Goo Car Wash has placed a donation jar in the lobby to cover funeral costs and to benefit the little girl.

Goo Goo Car Wash is located at 1537 N. Limestone St. The phone number is 859-225-0234.
