ZION, Ill --Police in the far north suburbs are asking for the public’s help in identifying two would-be robbers who shot their way out of a gas station in Zion.

Security cameras at the Zion BP captured the robbery attempt. The suspects are seen wearing bright yellow jackets. They had become trapped inside the gas station after workers locked the door via a switch behind the counter.

The gas station workers retreated to a back room and called police.

By the time police arrived, the suspects were gone and had shot out the door to escape.

The Zion police chief says a reward through Crime Stoppers is being offered in connection with this case.
