EASLEY, S.C. (AP) — Police say a South Carolina convenience store clerk has been killed in a shootout.

News outlets report Easley police are searching for the two men suspected in the shooting Friday night that killed Stacey Branham. Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley had identified the 49-year-old woman.

Police Chief Tim Tollison says Branham exchanged gunfire with the suspects wearing masks inside B Pam’s Food Mart, but there is no definitive evidence that she shot anyone.
