At about 11:15 pm last night deputies were called to a convenience store in the 700 block of Heflin Avenue West to investigate a report of a store clerk that had been robbed and shot.

Deputies arrived to find the 39-year-old victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and remains in critical condition.

Information at the scene indicated that the victim had closed the store for the night and was placing items in the front passenger seat of his van when a black male suspect came from behind the van and shot him. The suspect picked up a money bag and fired at the victim again before fleeing the immediate area on foot. The suspect was wearing a black shirt, black pants, and white shoes.

Deputies used a tracking dog to attempt to locate the suspect. The dog tracked the scent to a nearby intersection where it is believed that the suspect got into a vehicle and drove away.

Surveillance cameras captured these images of the suspect as he approached the victim.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at 205-325-1450 or Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777
