During the robbery, one of the males shot the employee before demanding the property of several people in store. Both males fled on foot.

The employee was taken to a local hospital for treatment and was initially listed in critical and unstable condition.

In an emailed statement Tuesday, a spokesperson for T-Mobile said the company takes “the safety of employees seriously and will do everything we can to support our third-party retailer as this investigation continues.”

“This is a tragic situation, and we continue to send our condolences to the friends, family and co-workers of the employee whose life was cut short,” the spokesperson said.
