MCCOMB, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

McComb police are reviewing surveillance video from a Monday night attempted gas station robbery that left one man dead.

On June 11, McComb police responded to Pure gas station on West Presley Blvd. around 9:41 pm where it was reported that someone tried to rob the store.

The robber was described as a black male wearing a black hoodie waving a small caliber handgun.

Officers arrived to find 21-year-old Saveyon Raheam Harvey, from McComb who had been shot several times.

It was reported that Harvey forced a female clerk inside the store at gun point after he came in contact with her at the front door.

Once inside Harvey pointed the handgun at the store clerk behind the register and demanded money while waving the gun around at both employees of Service Station.

Harvey and the store clerk begin exchanging gun fire before Harvey ran out the front doors towards W. Presley Blvd. and Witterman St., where a witness saw him stop in the roadway then fall into the westbound lane of W. Presley Blvd.

Officers arrived moments later to find Harvey dead.

"Its tough on this city, this is not something anybody should have to go through," said Chief Scott McKenzie of the McComb Police Department. "People do things they ought not do sometimes and this consequence that came out of this was unnecessary. Robberies don't need to happen."

Both handguns were recovered from the scene.

Police say they believe Harvey is also the same individual who robbed the store a few days ago.

Both of the store clerks were uninjured and are not facing any charges in the shooting.

The case will be presented to the Pike County grand jury.
