Boca Raton, FL Around 3:00 pm on Tuesday, Fernando Chang drove to the Town Center Mall parking lot on his lunch break and met his friend. He parked his blue Acura Integra and got into his friend's car. The two were eating their lunch in the car when they saw a white Acura Integra pull up next to Chang's vehicle. The driver of the car got out and walked into Sears. A few minutes later Chang and his friend watched the passenger in the white Acura get out and walk around Chang's car.
