AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — The Aurora Police Department is asking for help finding the man who shot a store clerk during a robbery.
The armed suspect went into the PJ Mart at 980 S. Peoria St. on Nov. 2 at 9:45 a.m. The suspect shot the clerk and ran off.
The suspect, as shown in the video, is described as a white or Hispanic male 5’07”-5’09” tall, 130-145 lbs., wearing a gray hoodie, dark pants, and a dark beanie. Under the hoodie appears to be a hat with orange lettering.
Amir Yahia, the victim’s son, said he has seen the video 20 times and it’s still difficult to watch.
“Seeing my dad like that is pretty hard to see for myself because he’s like the biggest role model and nicest guy ever,” Yahia said. “We don’t want this to happen again to another family.”
Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,000.
Anyone with information can leave a tip with the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers tip line at: 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
