Police have released surveillance images of two men wanted for the shooting death of a Family Dollar manager earlier this week and the armed robbery of a store last month on the South Side.
JQuinn McCune, 30, was working at the store in the 7900 block of South Ashland in the Gresham neighborhood when he saw someone inside stealing items about 5 p.m. July 5, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
When confronted, the shoplifter pulled out a gun and opened fire, hitting him in the chest, police said.
McCune, of the 1400 block of Hickory Hollow Drive in Flint, Michigan, was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he later died, authorities said.
Investigators are looking for two suspects in connection with the shooting. They were described as black men in their 20s between 5-foot-8 and 6-foot-1 and weighing 150 to 175 pounds, police said.
The same men are wanted for an armed robbery about 7:10 p.m. June 15 at a store in the 7300 block of South Ashland in Englewood, police said. In both incidents, the man with the gun had white cloth or gauze over his left eye.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to contact Area South detectives at (312) 747-8273.
