SUFFOLK, Va. — Gas station clerks are at a higher risk of violence and homicide than any other worker in any other industry.
And this research tries to address the problem. It recommends, among other things: bullet-proof barriers, alarms connected to police, and reducing the amount of cash on hand
Just last week in Suffolk, two masked gunmen killed a 7-Eleven store clerk in an overnight ambush. They took no money or merchandise.
A Suffolk Police Captain said investigators are still following up on leads and tips to the Crime Line as they work to identify the suspects and the motive.
It's a similar story in Newport News, where there remains a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed two workers inside the 7-Eleven off Kiln Creek Parkway last June.
That $10,000 reward is from the 7-Eleven Corporation, and it is in addition to the standard $1,500 Crime Line reward.
If you have information about either of these shootings, the Crime Line number is 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. You can also submit a tip online at P3Tips.com. You can remain anonymous and never have to testify in court.
