PALM COAST, Fla. -- A Palm Coast woman, who worked as a gas station clerk, was shot and killed Thursday night while on the job.

A call came into the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 10:21 p.m. Thursday from a customer who allegedly went into the Mobile station at 6020 East S.R. 100 and found 32-year-old Zuheily Roman Rosado on the floor behind the counter, according to a release from the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

The Medical Examiner has ruled that Rosado's death was a homicide by gunshot, according to a release from FCSO Lt. Bob Weber. The incident occurred from start to finish in less than 30 seconds.

Rosado has six children ranging in age from 1-year-old to 16-years-old.

"The last time, I didn't even get to hug her, or kiss her, or anything," said Rosado's 16-year-old daughter Teysha Silva. "Whoever did this doesn't have a heart. Doesn't have a heart."

A suspect was caught on surveillance video entering the store and allegedly pulling his shirt up over his face, the release detailed. The suspect then allegedly fled the store moments later, heading west towards a northbound entrance ramp to I-95.

"There was a video, a surveillance video at the scene, but unfortunately, it is of no value for ID purposes," said Flagler County Sheriff's Office Commander Jack Bisland.

Deputies and K-9 units arrived on scene within three minutes of the call being dispatched, the release added. Deputies searched the area with assistance from Volusia County Sheriff's Office Air One, but were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 5-feet-10 inches tall and was last seen wearing blue jean pants and a dark t-shirt, according to the FCSO.

FCSO detectives are on scene, along with investigators from the State Attorney's Homicide Investigative Unit and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene Unit. Police say they don't have a motive in the case.

Store owner Razzi Ansari said if the motive was robbery, it doesn't make sense that nothing was missing from his store.

"About $2,000 was sitting on top of the safe. She was supposed to drop it. It was sitting on top of the safe, nobody robbed it. $750, nothing missing."

However, "investigators are still trying to determine if anything of value was stolen during the incident," according to Weber's release.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 386-313-4911. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
