Police say the shooter followed the victim into the store and shot him. %
Police say 38-year-old Timothy Hill was taken to Grady Hospital where he died from his injuries.

Family members say Hill was a father of three and was with his brother when he was shot.
“It’s a big loss for us because he was more of our extra strength. He was out extra push. He was a hard man, a stern man, but a very loving man at the same time,” Walker said.
Police say the shooter left the scene in a black sedan.
Employees say the shooting was caught on video.
Family members say they were told an arrest was made Monday night.
