Valdosta - Two men who shot and robbed two store clerks Wednesday are still on the loose, and police are offering a reward for your help in finding them.

The men walked into the A and B Food, Beer, and Wine store on East Hill Avenue around 1:00 Wednesday and opened fire. Fifty-six year old Natavarkal Patel and his son Bhroatomar were both shot in the chest. Natavarkal died and Bhroatomar is in fair condition.

Police say they're looking for two black males, one about 5 foot 10, 140 pounds, and the other about 6 foot 2, 160 pounds. Both were sitting between the store and a laundry mat next door between 12:15 and 12:50 Wednesday.
