JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
Jackson Police detectives are investigating the overnight murder of a store security guard, and the shooting of the store clerk.
Jackson Police say the convenience store guard in this case was able to fire off a few rounds at his attackers, but he was fatally hit.
It happened just after 2:00 am Tuesday, at the Shell Gas Station, at the corner of Fortification Street and Jefferson Street in Belhaven.
In the surveillance video, released by police, two black males enter the store.
They covered their faces, and both were heavily armed.
Police say as they demand money from the clerk, reached into the cash drawer, and the security guard in a black hat comes up from behind the counter, then they exchange gunfire.
Police say the security guard, James McKinney, 54, was shot once in the chest and the arm.
McKinney died at the scene.
The store clerk is identifies as Suvin Sharth, 26, was shot once in the leg and has been released from the hospital.
"They might as well give themselves up cause it will be a matter of time before they catch 'em," said Charles Lober, who works security with McKinney. "They should give themselves up cause it should be on their conscience. That they took a mans life over nothing."
"My heart goes out to the family who lost a loved one, he's a hero who at least didn't back off from these things," said Surinder Singh, a spokesman for Indian store owners.
The video shows the vehicle used in the crime appears to have been a older model Chevy, with a white hood and a green or dark colored body.
A third individual sat inside the car while the crime was in progress.
Jackson Police are hoping someone recognizes the gunmen and can help them identify them, so they can make an arrest.
