[ARCHIVED] Armed Robbery with Shooting Surveillance Video

Press Release.jpg

At about 6:00PM on 1-19-14, officers responded to a report of a possible armed robbery with a shooting at Sam's Tobacco and Food Mart located at 235 W. Irving Park Road. Upon arrival, the officers found the 36 year old store's clerk, Hussein Saghir of Chicago, who had been shot outside on the ground in front of the store. Paramedics of the Bensenville Fire Protection District transported him to the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A review of the surveillance video from the store shows that Mr. Saghir and another store employee were exiting the store when they were confronted by two male subjects. During a brief struggle, one of them displayed a handgun and shot at Mr. Saghir before they both fled on foot east bound from the store.

This link, https: //, is a copy of a portion of the store's surveillance camera system that shows the two subjects, one wearing an Abercrombie and Fitch maroon hoodie and True Religion blue jeans. The second subject was wearing a black hoodie with a white portion on the front.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Bensenville Police Department at 630-350-3455.
