Blake Mohs Wiki – Blake Mohs Biography

Blake Mohs a 26-year-old Home Depot security guard was fatally shot by a suspected burglar this week, just months before the Eagle Scout and his fiancée held their wedding at the Boy Scout camp where they first met.

According to the Pleasanton Police Department, Blake Mohs “was confronted by a resisting female burglar and shot” inside the Home Depot on Johnson Drive Tuesday afternoon. That suspect, identified as 32-year-old Benicia Knapps, was allegedly aided by 31-year-old David Guillory, whom police identified as the getaway driver. Knapps’ 2-year-old boy was in the car at the time of the shooting, police said.

Pleasanton police Lt. Erik Silacci told reporters Wednesday that what started as a robbery of an “electrical item” turned into robbery and murder. He said the suspects face charges of murder, robbery, child endangerment and conspiracy. Silacci indicated that additional charges may be filed as the investigation progresses. Silacci said the alleged murder weapon, which was found at an intersection, was not a legally registered firearm. The suspects, both Oakland residents, were taken into custody there after fleeing the scene of the Home Depot, police said.

Eric Mohs Blake cause of death

“After they fled the scene, a handgun was recovered at a nearby intersection. Around 2:30 p.m. m., the two suspects were taken into custody by deputies from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and the child was released to his relatives,” police said. Pleasanton is located within Alameda County.

According to CBS Bay Area, once Knapps was in the back seat of an Alameda County sheriff’s cruiser, she choked unconscious with a seat belt, leading to her being placed on mental health hold while Guillory was admitted to the Santa Rita jail.


Lt. Silacci said he did not know Mohs personally, but said those who knew and loved him remember the loss prevention employee and enthusiastic scouting volunteer as a “great person” with a “zeal for life” and interest in law enforcement; Blake’s grandfather was a police officer. Mohs, an Eagle Scout, died at Eden Medical Center months before a planned wedding at Camp Royaneh, the Boy Scout camp near the Russian River, where the couple met as counselors.

“Blake was a well-known member of the community who helped keep customers and staff safe. He was involved in community youth programs and was planning to get married in the summer,” authorities said in a Facebook post. “He is survived by his parents, brother and fiancee.” Blake Mohs’ parents spoke about the death of his son in an interview with KGO. Lorie Mohs said that her son and her fiancée had known each other for years before they fell in love.

“They looked at each other and had seen each other for a long time, but then they saw each other differently and almost five years later they were planning a wedding and a future,” Lorie said. “Those were things that he was really looking forward to with his future wife and children and participating in,” she continued.


A wedding website shows that Blake Mohs and his fiancée Kasey were to be married in church on August 12 in Cazadero. The ceremony was to be followed by a wedding reception at the campsite, and guests were invited to bring their camping gear and remain on site. A Home Depot spokesperson said the company was “heartbroken by the senseless tragedy” and the death of “our partner and friend,” according to KRON.

Pleasanton Mayor Karla Brown called the “senseless shooting” of a model citizen “heartbreaking and infuriating.” “The City Council joins me in offering our deepest condolences to Blake’s family, friends and loved ones and all those affected by this tragedy,” the mayor said.Read More……
