Manhunt for suspects in deadly South Fulton convenience store robbery
SOUTH FULTON, Ga. – South Fulton Police released an image of the two men wanted in a fatal shooting at a convenience store on Tuesday evening.
Officers have been dispatched to the Quick Pick Food Mart located in the 5200 block of Welcome All Road. South Fulton Police say officers found a 44-year-old shop worker with multiple gunshot wounds.
Doctors pronounced the clerk dead at the scene.
Investigators spent the evening scouring the scene for evidence, reviewing surveillance video and speaking to witnesses. They were quickly able to link the deadly robbery to a second earlier robbery that happened minutes before and about a mile and a half southwest of the convenience store.
Police said the couple entered the Dollar General store located at 4837 Roosevelt Highway. The surveillance video there was able to clearly capture the masked me.

One wore black with a black ski mask. The other suspect wore a yellow hoodie with black Adidas track pants and military fatigues. Each of the men wore a glove.
Investigators said no injuries were reported at the Dollar General, but as they left the convenience store, they opened fire, killing the clerk.
Shop owner Seyed Buhari said Tony Zeneabe, 44, was killed. He told FOX 5 that his wife, Zeneabe’s brother, was at the store at the time. He called Zenabe his right and left arm who has worked in his store for three years. He also said that Zeneabe was a father and a husband. Buhari expressed his disbelief wondering why anyone would want to shoot him.
“Tony was a good guy. He didn’t deserve what happened here today, you know,” client Terrance Williams said. “I saw it yesterday, that’s what’s crazy.”
A makeshift memorial has been set up in front of the store to honor Zeneabe.

“It makes me angrier than anything anyone could do to someone like that that I know personally,” Williams said. “It makes me want to scream like ‘What’s going on? “”
Police said the men may have been driving a new Bronze Model Chevrolet Malibu.
Anyone with information is asked to call the South Fulton Police Department of Crime Stoppers Atlanta.
