    Please get your facts right. Emergency crews were called just before 6am – not 8am. Your skewed timeline is causing parents at nearby schools to think it happened when their children were on their way to school instead of hours before.

    MURRAY, Utah – Authorities are searching for suspects accused of shooting a convenience store clerk in Murray.Emergency crews were called to Lee Mart near 5900 S. and 700 W. at about 5:30 a.m. The Story was updated after 8 Am. This is Very Sad situation, I have known a few people that have been robbed at gun point luckily none have been shot at yet, People need to stop trying to take the Easy way out. I hate to think that this person may end up losing their life because some little Thug can’t be Bothered to get a real job to support themselves.

    He got shot when they were running out? Not sure if that is correct, if he was only shot once then what is the flash to the left towards the start of the video? Looks to me like he probably got shot then the suspects ran and adrenaline helped him throw the register at them as they were escaping….. Just saying

    ARM YOURSELVES!!!! Predators prey on those whom they perceive as weak and defenseless. They will find a different line of work if they don’t know who has teeth.

    Shoot more of these greasy little meat sacks and the problem will resolve itself.
