Surveillance video released in murder of Bensenville clerk
Police released surveillance video Monday hoping to solve the murder of a stork clerk in Bensenville, Ill.
The video is disturbing and gives an idea of the last few minutes of Hussein Saghir’s life. It shows the 36-year-old leaving Sam’s Tobacco and Food Mart with his brother, the owner, at about 6 p.m. Sunday. The camera caught two men lurking outside waiting for them to open the door.
“They were confronted by two subjects try to force their way in when one fired a shot,” said Bensenville Police Chief Frank Kosman.
The video does not show the fatal shot, but one that missed both men, who continued to fight for their lives. Kosman won’t say if robbery was the motive.
But we know from friends that the surveillance cameras were put in after a robbery at the store in November where three men took cash from a different clerk. No one was ever arrested in that case.
When police arrived Sunday night, Saghir was dying outside the store. His brother was not hurt. The two suspects, light complected black men in their late teens or early twenties, ran away.
This is the first murder in Bensenville in 10 years.
