Columbus Police stand guard outside of Smith’s Market on Sullivant Avenue late Tuesday night February 10, 2009. Police received an alarm from the store at 7:42 and responded to find the clerk shot in the abdomen behind the counter. The clerk was transported to Mt. Carmel West Hospital in critical, life threatening condition and was reported to be in surgery as of 9 PM, still life threatening. Robby is initially investigating the crime, but will turn it over to homicide if the victim goes DOA. No witnesses where available for the crime and no surveillance cameras where in the store, hence no description of the suspect.
