Raleigh station clerk killed during overnight robbery

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are searching for a killer after a clerk at a gas station in Raleigh was fatally shot early Thursday.

Police say two people called for help just after 1 a.m. at the Exxon at the corner of Stage and Coleman roads.  First responders found the clerk dead from a gunshot wound.

"I just call him friend all the time. I say, 'What's up friend? He says, 'Hey. God bless  you," customer Sabrina Woods said. She didn't know the victim by name, but says she's heartbroken.

So is Don Parris, who owns a detailing business on the same lot. "Every morning. Every morning I come in grab a cup of coffee, and we would just talk," he said.

Officers tell WREG the shooting may have been the result of an apparent robbery.

Thursday evening, police released surveillance footage they say shows the suspect. Photos are below. If you have information call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
