Convenience store shooting connections

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Police now have evidence that the armed robber who gunned down two convenience store clerks in West Palm Beach Saturday night was the same robber shot and killed by a clerk less than an hour later in Delray Beach.

Tyrone Pinkney walked in, guns blazing. The clerk returned fire and shot him right in the chest, killing him. Little did the clerk know, he had just shot the man who killed a clerk and customer at a West Palm Beach store about a half hour earlier.

Pinkney was also linked to the deaths of two clerks in Lake Worth last year, but never charged.
