According to reports, the killer entered the Dollar General located off of Sunnyvale and Ledbetter around 7:00 p.m.
The suspect pulled out a gun and demanded money and as the female clerk reached for the cash drawer, the suspect shot her in the chest and fled the scene.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died.
At this time it’s unclear if the suspect managed to take anything.
According to officials, the suspect was a black man, wearing a black bandana with all black clothing. He was last seen running west of the Dollar General, possibly with an accomplice who served as a lookout.
Officers are reviewing cameras with the hope of making an arrest.
The case is still under investigation at this time and police are asking if anyone has any information regarding this crime to call crime stoppers.
