COLUMBUS (AP) — Police in Columbus say a convenience store clerk has been fatally shot during a robbery.

Officers said two men robbed the Convenient Plus Food Mart on the city’s east side at about 11 p.m. Wednesday. At least one of them shot an employee, 34-year-old Imran Ashgar, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other employees who were at the store were not hurt, and a number of fleeing witnesses were seen.

Surveillance video shows both of the robbers brandishing handguns. Ashgar was unarmed.

Police said it was the city’s 50th homicide of 2013.

Can't find any shells to buy for hunting woodchucks but those city boys have plenty to kill people.
