Demonique Johnson, an employee of the store for approximately five months, died during the robbery.

“Never bothered nobody,” his father Willie Johnson said in an interview to ABC 13. “Hard-working man, all he did was try to make money to do what he needed done.”

The robbers targeted the store in the 7600 block of Jensen around 10:00 p.m. Surveillance video shows Johnson struggling with the men before being hit with the fatal shot.
