There were two employees working at the store at the time of the incident.  A female employee was outside assisting a customer when she noticed a black male seated in a vehicle in the parking lot.  Based on the preliminary investigation, the black male followed her back inside when she was done with the customer.  Once they got back inside, the suspect asked her to open the cash drawer.

The second employee, a male, walked out from the back of the store and saw the interaction between the female and the suspect.  The male employee attempted to pull his weapon when he was shot by the suspect.  The victim died at the scene.

The suspect fled the store, got into his vehicle, and at that time was last seen driving towards Interstate 85.
