Sources say the man was stabbed several times inside the McKinley Parkway store around 4:30 a.m.
Hamburg Police say surveillance video shows what appears to be a man between 5'9" and 5'11" wearing a Florida Gators 2007 National Championship hat. The hat is the only piece of evidence so far in the case.
The video picks out the suspect up at different spots throughout the store until he enters the manager's office in the morning.
Police say shortly thereafter, the video is disabled presumably from the suspect pulling the plug from the wall.
Surveillance photos were posted on the Hamburg Police Facebook page Sunday afternoon. In the grainy images, it appears he was wearing sweatpants with lettering down the left leg and a jacket with a high tan collar or some sort of scarf.
The suspect also appears to be holding a sharp weapon in his hand as he walks through the store.
So far, no motive has been determined. The video has been sent for enhancement and the recovered hat is being tested for DNA.
If anyone recognizes the hat or has any more information on this case, they are asked to call Hamburg Police 648-5111 ext. 2502.
The store remains closed during the investigation.
