Jeremy A. Marvin, an investigator with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Unit said, “

On Monday June 12, 2017, around 6:30 p.m. three unknown black male subjects entered the Marathon Gas Station on U. S. Highway 80 East. They entered the store and robbed the clerk of the money in the cash register. The clerk was shot and was transported to the nearby hospital for life threatening injuries. “

Marvin said, “If anyone has any information in regards to this case, please contact the State Bureau of Investigations or the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office.”
