DAILYKENN.com -- Lynn Marie Maher, 49, was fatally shot at a 7-Eleven where she worked to help support her family.
Maher was a wife, mother of three, and stepmother to a fourth. Her family regarded her as a friendly fixture that made the convenience store a community gathering place, according to the report.
The shooting happened around 1 a.m. on Oct. 1 at the 7-Eleven on Middletown Road in Waldorf. Charles County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Diane Richardson said the shooting happened within seconds of Collins entering the store and demanding money.
"He approached her, he produced a gun, it looked like she was complying and he shot her at that time," Richardson said.
Several customers were inside the store when the shooting happened, according to Richardson.
