Dallas police say a clerk has been fatally shot outside a convenience store, and as many as four attackers are being sought.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of the Nathan's Food, Beer and Wine Store at 777 Fawn Ridge Drive in South Oak Cliff around 11:15 p.m. Monday, according to police.

Investigators told NBC 5 that two clerks from the store were walking outside when as many as four people tried to rob them.

During a scuffle that followed, someone shot store clerk Ahferom Berhane, 26, of Richardson, who was later pronounced dead at Dallas Methodist Hospital, police said.

Detectives did recover a handgun at the scene of the shooting, but would not confirm if it was the one they believed was used in the crime.

The other clerk involved in the incident was not seriously hurt, according to police.

Officers did not provide a description of any of the suspects involved in the shooting.

NBC 5's Ben Russell contributed to this report.
