HANOVER, Maryland — Anne Arundel County police are hoping that rewards totaling up to $27,000 will lead to the arrest of a man who shot and killed a gas station clerk during a robbery.

Forty-nine-year-old Rajinder Kumar of Glen Burnie was shot Aug. 7 at an Exxon station in Hanover. The crime was recorded on surveillance video.
