Police are looking for a suspect in the killing of a woman inside a Mesa smoke shop.

KTVK-TV (http://bit.ly/LVLvG4) reported Monday authorities believe a woman found dead Sunday night behind the counter at Cigarettes 4 Less was the victim of a robbery.

Mesa police identified the victim Tuesday as Mi-Sum "Mimi" Price, 51, and are officially classifying the situation as a homicide.

Price, reportedly the owner of the shop, was found by a customer at the stop at Greenfield Road and Mesa Street. Her body showed signs of trauma, police said.
