Shelby County deputies released surveillance footage of a man they say robbed and killed a gas station clerk.

The robbery happened at the Zorro Market in the 7900 block of E. Shelby Drive Thursday night.

"These are some real good guys here," Onzie Horn said of the workers at Zorro Market. "I come in here every night; they're just as courteous as they could be."

Thursday night, a man wearing an orange hat came into the store with a gun.

Police said he shot an employee and crawled under the counter to try and open the cash register.

The employee died from the shooting.

"It's very discouraging, because it makes you feel like you can't have anything because somebody is going to come in and rob you," Latrischa Butler said.

"I just hope they find the guy and somebody does something about it," Horn said.

If you have any information that could help in this case, or know who the man is in the surveillance footage, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
