JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A clerk wounded in an armed robbery at an Arlington gas station over the weekend has died of his injuries, and police are looking for the shooter.

The shooting unfolded during a pre-dawn robbery Saturday at the GATE gas station located on Merrill Road near Townsend Boulevard, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff's Office said Martin Hower, 55, was shot in the abdomen. Hower, a New York transplant, was taken to an area hospital, but he did not survive.


JSO and gas station clerks describe the suspect as an approximate 5'9" black male in his late teens-early 20s. He fled on foot and is armed with a handgun.

I returned to the Gate gas station today, I found this picture of Martin Howard at the checkout counter. Employees expressing how much they will miss him, on what appears to be a screenshot from surveillance video. JSO said this is now a homicide investigation. @ActionNewsJax
