BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - When the robber pulled a gun on the woman, she froze. Seconds later, the robber shot her in the chest. It all happened in front of her husband. Family members say they want justice for a woman who was nice to everyone.
A single bouquet of flowers lays on the ground outside the Bainbridge Food Mart at the Inland Gas Station on Shotwell Street. 48-year old Datta Atal Dave was shot in the chest behind the counter by an armed robber demanding money, as her husband looked on.
"She panicked and was trying to open the cash register and he ended up shooting her not waiting on her as she was trying to get into the cash register and he fatally shot her and fled out of the store," said Bainbridge Public Safety Chief Investigator Frank Green.
Bainbridge Public Safety officers and the GBI walked the street and a wooded areas south of the business talking with neighbors and giving out the suspects description.
"He's a black male, approximately six foot tall, and he's a slim build. He was wearing a dark colored tank top, dark colored shorts, and tennis shoes," Green said.
Employees at the neighboring Yesterday's Diner and customers at the station are saddened by Datta's death.
"She was a real friendly person," said Jane Campbell of Yesterday's Diner.
"She was just always real sweet when I came in," said customer Mike Grant.
He says something needs to be done about the amount of armed robberies in the city. "It's become a real bad situation, real bad."
Public safety believes the suspect has been in the store before and now they're talking with other store owners.
"Basically we've been asking for video surveillance looking for someone who matched the description coming into store, so everyone is aware of it at this time," said Green.
Hoping someone will have information that will lead to the arrest, giving the family some justice.
Anyone who may information on the suspect or about the armed robbery is asked to call Bainbridge Public Safety or the GBI in Thomasville.
