Masked Gunmen Kill Store Clerk

The night manager of a Pitt County convenience store watches as his friend is shot in the chest at close range, and dies in his arms. Ali Matana, who works at the Cash and Carry on Highway 11 in Grifton, was working Monday night, when he says three men wearing Halloween masks, the kind from the movie "Scary Movie," came into the store around 10:30 with two sawed-off shotguns, and demanded money. Ali says once the men got the money, one of them turned and shot and killed his friend, who was also an employee. The search continues for the suspects.
