FORT MILL -- Authorities on Thursday released the name of the 47-year-old man killed in Wednesday's robbery of a Fort Mill payday lending business.
Joseph S. Fatigato of Pineville, N.C., was shot after a man took money from a cash drawer at Anyday Payday Loans on U.S. 21, according to a report from York County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities found Fatigato lying on the floor, the report states.
He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where he died. York County Sheriff Bruce Bryant did not reveal how many times or where Fatigato was shot, citing ongoing investigation.

No arrest has been made in the shooting, said Sheriff's Office Capt. Jerry Hoffman.
Surveillance video shows three masked men in dark clothes who entered the business around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday "prepared to rob the store," police said.
One man clutched a white item that looked like a bag.
One of the men jumped the counter. A second man went behind the counter, while the third man stayed out front, near a male customer.
"There was a customer who was told to turn and face the wall, and he did that," Hoffman said.
The man stuffed an undisclosed amount of cash in a white bag, according to the report and the video.
According to the police report, the customer told police that one of the men scuffled with Fatigato. During that scuffle, Fatigato was shot.
The customer was not hurt.
The robbers fled the business in a 2000 silver-colored Plymouth Voyager, police said. A patrol officer found the Voyager a short distance away on an entry road to Allied Waste, Hoffman said.
"It was running when the officer found it," Hoffman said. "It was stolen from Charlotte some time earlier" on Wednesday.
A dog was unable to track the men.
Authorities are working with Charlotte officials to determine whether the Fort Mill gunmen committed other robberies in Charlotte, Hoffman said.
"I can't say there's a connection," Hoffman said. "I believe Charlotte has been experiencing quite a bit of robberies, so this may fit the method."
Police did not recover the weapon, Bryant said. He declined to say what type of firearm was used or if any casings were recovered at the scene.
