A man fatally shot a Dunkin' Donuts manager shortly after she opened the store, located at 532 W. Lehigh Ave., early Saturday morning, Philly police say.

Philadelphia police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man wanted for fatally shooting a Dunkin' Donuts manager during a robbery early Saturday morning in the city's Fairhill neighborhood. 

The man approached the manager, Christine Lugo, as she was unlocking the store, located at 532 W. Lehigh Ave. at 5:23 a.m., police said. The man pushed Lugo into the store at gunpoint and forced her to turn over the store's money. He then shot her once in the head and fled the store in an unknown direction. 

Lugo, 41, was pronounced dead at the scene. Co-workers described her as a mother of two with a "kind heart and smile," CBS Philly reported. 

Police described the suspect as a man in his late 30s to early 40s with a medium-to-stocky build, a mustache and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a blue, zip-up hooded sweatshirt and gray, cargo sweatpants. He also had light gray New Balance sneakers, an analog watch on his right wrist, blue gloves and a blue medical mask.
