Amer Mahmood - a store clerk murdered in Durham, North Carolina

Amer Mahmood, age 48, died on July 4, 2015, at a convenience store in Durham, North Carolina.

Amer was working at the store on the late shift.  In the early morning hours of July 4th, a male entered the store with his shirt pulled over his face.  He waved a gun around and demanded that about 6 customers leave the store.

Amer was shot twice after he handed over money from the cash register. 

The suspect fled the store and fired at police officers who had responded to the robbery scene. The suspect was shot but did not receive life-threatening injuries.  

Tragically, Amer died at the scene. 

Dmarlo Johnson, age 26, has been charged with murder in connection with this tragedy. It is believed that he had been a regular customer at the convenience store. 
Angels of God, pray for Amer and for those
who have lost him.

Dmarlo Johnson is innocent unless proven guilty.  

However, we put this question to the thief who killed Amer: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

A fundraising site has been set up to help with Amer's funeral and other expenses.

Amer's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was a loving husband and the father of two children.  He was hard working, generous and kind. He will be forever mourned.

Amer is survived by many loving friends and family members including his wife and children.

Pray for all who go to work and who die there. 

Pray for justice for Amer. 

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that Amer is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
