Police are looking for four robbers after a clerk is shot in southwest Atlanta. Investigators said they have a major lead in the case, because the entire crime was caught on surveillance video.

Police said two men entered the Citgo gas station on Empire Boulevard, posing as customers. Police said the men came back with two other men around 5:30 Wednesday morning and robbed the clerk, then shot him in the leg.

Detectives said 25-year-old Sarjo Sonko was sleeping and unlocked the door for the men because he thought they wanted to buy something.

Surveillance video shows the two men immediately pull out their weapons and point guns at Sonko's head and leg.  One gunmen shoots the clerk in the leg, then the two men drag the Gambia native to the cage area where the safe is.

Police said the men got away with an undisclosed amount of money.  They are asking anyone with information to give them a call.
