CHESTER, Pa. -

A Rite-Aid robbery in Chester turned deadly Thursday night after a man and woman gunned down the store manager. This afternoon, The Citizen's Crime Commission, in conjunction with Rite-Aid, has issued a $20,000 reward for information that could lead to arrest and conviction of the offenders.

The robbery and deadly shooting happened just minutes before closing around 10 p.m. at the 9th and Highland Avenue store. Two suspects were caught on surveillance: a woman wearing a red hoodie and jeans and a man in a white V-neck shirt.

Police say that the man and woman got into an argument with the manager and shot him in the head. He died at the scene by the time police arrived.

Other employees and customers heard the shot and ran for the door.

The reward for information was previously at $10,000, but it was raised in the afternoon.

Take a look at the suspects again. If you know anything, call police.
