 CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Authorities are still searching for the suspects in the armed robbery and shooting death of a Conway store clerk Sunday night. 

Trisha Dawn Stull, 30, was shot and killed when two men seen on surveillance video attempted to rob the store.

The Sunhouse convenience store was open on Thursday, as a red and yellow ribbon with a white rose hangs on the outside of the door in Stull's memory.  Customers have been signing a book expressing condolences for the family.

Gaylon Mullis, Sunhouse Petroleum Spokesperson, said the support of the community during this tragic time is overwhelming. 

"The people here have come out and really supported they feel so sad about what has happened," Mullis said. He could not go into detail, but the company is working on better security measures for their stores. Mullis said they have already upgraded their security camera system. 

"We're beefing up our security for the customer and the people working at the store, where they can feel comfortable coming into work and the customer can feel at ease and do their shopping and leave," Mullis explained.

Mullis said he has been in contact with detectives involved in the investigation, and he said they are working every lead they receive to find the suspects. "I talked to the detectives today [Thursday] - 127 leads yesterday, 104 leads today, so the leads are coming, and they're doing everything they can to follow the leads."

Mullis said he is glad the community has been so proactive and supportive of the store. A sign expressing Sunhouse Petroleum's gratitude is hanging outside the store located on Oak and Cultra Streets just outside Conway city limits.

The sign reads, "Thank you for your concerns and your continued support is greatly appreciated."

Mullis said Sunhouse Petroleum has paid for the majority of the funeral expenses to bury Stull. He said they also plan to provide financial assistance for Stull's two sons. 

Mullis said he believes an arrest will come soon. "They'll be caught, they'll be caught and they're prices will be paid. You can only do this for a while before you get caught," he said.
