Thursday's sudden death of pop legend Michael Jackson has created a run on his music.

Many stores in Augusta sold out last night.

"With the tragic death of Michael, we are sold out currently," Augusta Best Buy Manager Steve Maxcy said this morning.

Mr. Maxcy said the store sold out within an hour after the singer's death was announced, something which is typical after an artist's death. He expects a new shipment of Mr. Jackson's music to arrive on Saturday.

Both Target locations, on Robert C. Daniel Parkway and Washington Road, have also sold out. The King of Pop's music was also gone at Wal-Mart locations on Bobby Jones Expressway and Washington Road this morning.

Fans in search of his music might have luck at Wal-Mart on Deans Bridge Road or FYE in Augusta Mall. Both stores said this morning they still had music in stock.
