NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in central Arkansas say a convenience store clerk was shot and killed in an attempted robbery.

North Little Rock Police Sgt. Brian Dedrick says three men went to an EZ Mart on MacArthur Drive Saturday night to rob the store. Dedrick says 1 of the men left the store and then came back and fatally shot the clerk, 29-year-old Akiya Egeston.

Authorities say the three suspects fled the area and were last seen running behind the store and going west.

Dedrick says so far it doesn't appear that the suspects got away with anything from the store.

Police say EZ Mart is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identity, arrest and conviction of the suspects.
