The city of Canton is morning the loss of a teenager who was killed in a convenience store during a robbery Monday night while working with his father.
Patrons and family of the owners of the Fat Boy convenience store are still in disbelief after this deadly robbery.

Muhammed Saeed, also known to friends as Lil' Ali, was just 13 years old and spending time after school to learn the family business.

His father, Fahd Saeed, who was also shot, is in the hospital in stable condition.

Assistant Police Chief Juan Cloy said, "They enter the store and one yielded a gun, shot the clerk, the 13 year old at point blank range, then the other was also shot."

This afternoon city leaders and law enforcement held a press conference talking about how they plan to respond in the wake of this tragedy.

Mayor Arnel Bolden said, "I want to make it clear that these types of incidents in our community will not be tolerated."

Police say they are looking for two suspects identified as 19-year old Teaonta Clark and 34-year-old Tony Clark of Canton.

Police say that surveillance video shows the two suspects arriving before the shooting and robbery. The suspects appears to drive up in a dark colored four door sedan before they enter the store. 

Assistant Chief Juan Cloy said, "It's very heinous, were actually trying to stay calm, just watching this video is really sad."

Investigators say after the shooting they left, taking an undetermined amount of cash. 

Police believe the two could still be using the vehicle and could still be in the area. 

Police say they are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call Canton police at 601-859-2121.
