2 brothers shot to death inside Evanston cigar shop

Two brothers were found shot to death inside their family business in downtown Evanston.

38 year-old Azim Hakeem and  34 year-old Mobeen Hakeem were found in the basement of “Evanston Pipe & Tobacco” shop, located at 923 Davis Street, at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

No word yet on when they were killed, but the last transaction at the shop was at 1:30pm. Police don’t believe a robbery took place.

“Azim and Mobeen we miss you. We love you. And, we’ve been remembering you forever. You are the best, both, nephews to me,” said their uncle, Qudrat Syed.

Their family says the brothers didn’t own a gun.
