Pawn shop owner killed in Easley

(Easley-AP) June 15, 2006 - The owner of an Easley pawn shop was killed Thursday afternoon in a robbery.

Police Major Tim Tollison says a man entered Action Pawn shop around 1:40pm, shooting the owner, then firing two shots at his wife, who was not hurt.

Tollison says the man put merchandise into a black bag before leaving.

Police think the suspect drove off in a white four-door sedan. He is described as a white male, 24 to 28 years old with a large tattoo of a cross on his left arm.

A surveillance camera in the store captured a clear picture of the man during the robbery.

The name of the store owner has not been released.
