An Ogden convenience store owner was shot and killed in his store over the weekend, and police said Tuesday they have detained a person of interest.

Satnam Singh, 65, was working at his store, Super Grocery, at 675 N. Monroe Blvd. in Ogden on Sunday night, according to Ogden police. At about 11:50 p.m., police say, someone entered the store, and, after speaking briefly to Singh, pulled out a pistol and shot the store owner.

Singh died at the scene. The gunman ran out of the store, heading northwest out of the parking lot, police said. Police also said they do not know of a motive for the shooting.
