Suspects sought in College Park gas station murder

Posted: Updated:
COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -

College Park police are searching for two men they say shot and killed a gas station employee.

Investigators say images captured from surveillance video show two men robbing the BP gas station on West Fayetteville Road Saturday night.

The gunmen were in the store for a total of four seconds before one of them raised his gun and shot store clerk, 28-year-old Alagie Dibba.

The armed man said "Get down, put your hands up," then started to repeat what he said when police say he pulled the trigger.  Police say he left without taking anything, but they believe the motive was robbery.

"It appeared that they were startled that the gun went off and they immediately they ran out of the business," said Major Linda Burke of the College Park Department. "I think it actually went further than they anticipated."

Dibba later died at the hospital. He was a young, married father who was expecting his second child in a few months.

"We want to know why they killed our brother," said Modibo Jarjusdi. "They are cowards. I want them to come out and face justice."

The BP station where Dibba worked is now raising money for his family.  Store owner Sam Ukani says Dibba was a hard worker.

"He was just working and supporting his brother, living with his sister," said Ukani.

Police say the two young men were not in car, but ran away from the scene. Investigators say they are young – aged 15 to 19.

Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call the College Park Police Department at 404-761-3131.
