A 7-Eleven convenience store employee who was killed during a robbery attempt Saturday was remembered by customers as a nice guy.
Taiwo Oduwole, 31, was found inside the business, suffering from gunshot wounds, early Saturday morning by police. He died later at the hospital.
Keith Turner, a customer at the 7-Eleven located on Brandywine Road in Clinton, Maryland, was angry and upset about the shooting death.
"All the guy had to do was ask for whatever he wanted," Turner said. "He was going to get it. He didn't have to kill this guy for it. And that's the bad thing about it. You took an innocent life."
Prince George’s County police released surveillance video from a nearby Comfort Inn that was robbed early Saturday. They believe the video shows the man they think shot and killed Oduwole.
A makeshift memorial at the entrance of the store brought people together to remember the store employee.
"The young man had only been here a couple months, and he was just such a sweet gentleman," said Kimberly Brent, a customer. "I would stop here with my kids. He was always very pleasant."
There is a reward up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment. Customers are planning a car wash on Saturday to raise more money for the reward.
