At a south Evanston condo building where suspected bank robber, Kevin Ross, lived with his wife, police may have solved a crime they didn’t know they were investigating.

Police say they found evidence linking Ross to last summer’s murders of  38-year old Azim Hakeem and his brother 34-year old Mobeen Hakeem.
They were killed in their Evanston tobacco store.

“We uncovered identification belonging to both victims, shell casings that were unique and consistent with those found at the crime scene,” Evanston Police Commander Jay Parrott said.

Police say they also found a receipt from the store and an assault rifle.

Police shot and killed Ross Monday after they say he refused to drop his weapon following a robbery at a Chase bank.
