The search is on for a killer after a shooting at a northwest Indiana convenience store.

A 28-year-old cashier was killed. Investigators are trying to determine if robbery was the motive.

The shooting happened around noon Sunday in the 1600-block of Virginia in Gary. The store is closed Monday after Gary police found Mihid Abutemeh shot in the doorway.

Nearby residents said they knew they could get a few quick items at the Food Mart on Virginia and could count on generosity. Residents and police say the mart had been robbed previously.
