PUNTA GORDA, Fla -- It's been almost 5 months since 18-year-old Kyle Farishian was murdered while working the overnight shift at a Punta Gorda 7-Eleven.
 
Punta Gorda Police Lt. Katie Heck told Fox-4 Sunday there are no suspects in the case at this time.
 
Farishian was shot sometime during the early morning hours of November 1st.  The suspect then set fire to the store on Bal Harbor and Aqui Esta Boulevard.
 
"I would like to think they are doing everything possible still, to find the person that was responsible for this crime," said Penny Kapin, who lives nearby.
 
A week later, police and the Charlotte County SWAT team served a warrant related to the case at a home on Deborah Drive, but no arrests were made.
 
A few days later they searched a lake near the scene.
 
A reward in the case now stands at $20,000.  Anyone with information is asked to call 941- 639-4111.
