DAVISVILLE, Fla. -- Authorities say the owner of a Florida Panhandle convenience store was fatally shot during an apparent robbery.
    
Escambia County Sheriff's spokesman Mike Ward says two men wearing ski masks shot the owner of State Line O'Yes Lotto Tuesday afternoon. The pink store sells lottery tickets and beer and is located on Highway 97 near the Florida-Alabama state line.
    
The Pensacola News Journal reports the body of 74-year-old Thomas "Tommy" Kroll was found behind the counter.
    
Kroll and his wife, Kathy, have owned the store for about 11 years.
    
The sheriff's office and officers from the nearby Century Correctional Institute searched for the suspects, causing three nearby schools to go on lock-down for about 45 minutes.
    
The investigation continues.
