CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office have released pictures of a man suspected of robbing a convenience store in Adams run and fatally shooting the 37-year-old clerk Thursday afternoon 

Detectives are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the person and vehicle captured on surveillance video from the D&V Convenience Store located on 8808 Savannah Hwy near Highway 174.

Deputies responded to the store at 3:50 p.m. after receiving a call about a deceased person inside the store.

"We had an individual stop by the store a little before 4 this afternoon and found an individual dead in the store," Sheriff Al Cannon said.

The coroner's office says the victim was 37-year-old Crystal Johnson of Adams Run.

According to the sheriff's office, the suspect pulled into the parking lot in a blue 4-door sub-compact car, possibly a Ford, at 1:42 p.m. Authorities say the suspect then went inside the store and robbed it after shooting Johnson.

The suspect then left the store.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Charles Lawrence at 843-743-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.

Christie Moultrie, Johnson's sister, said Moultrie was looking after the store for her aunt, who is the owner of the business.

"It's a lot to swallow because that's my ace in the hole, we do everything together," Moultrie said."I hope they find whoever did this and find out why."

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday. Detectives are continuing the investigation.
