A 29-year-old man was behind bars Wednesday for allegedly gunning down a Lancaster gas station clerk during a robbery in June.

Sean Searcy, 30, was shot in the 500 block of West Avenue J about 8:25 p.m. on June 29, according to the sheriff’s department. He died at the scene.

Detectives identified Marcell Sullivan as the suspect following an extensive investigation that included the examination of video footage and witness statements, according to the sheriff’s department.

Sullivan was arrested at his Lancaster home on Tuesday, and a handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, was seized by detectives who served a search warrant, the sheriff’s department reported.

He’s being held on a “no bail” murder warrant at the Lancaster sheriff’s Station.
