Virginia-Highland store owner killed in robbery

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Police are searching for a gunman who killed the owner of a convenience store in northeast Atlanta early Friday. Investigators say it appears the victim was shot when he tried to use a bat to fight off the gunman in the Barnett Street store.  

Authorities said Mushtaq "Mike" Moloo, 46,  died at the scene.

Stunned store patrons created a makeshift memorial for Moloo on Friday.

"This is devastating to the community.  He represented Poncy-Highlands, and it's just a travesty that this happened," said Kristin Scalzitti.

Police have not identified any suspects.

Moloo leaves behind a wife and three children.
