Police are seeking better-quality photos from a graphic surveillance video that captured an armed robbery and fatal shooting outside a Bensenville food shop, authorities said Tuesday.
"We are also waiting for forensic results from the lab," Bensenville police Chief Frank Kosman said. "We have a lot of evidence, including the video, which we think will help us solve this case."
No arrests have been made in the shooting of Hussein Saghir, 36, a clerk at the small shop owned by his brother.
The department has received a number of tips and calls after asking the public for help, Kosman said.
Detectives have yet to identify the two men who confronted Saghir and his brother as they were leaving Sam's Tobacco and Food Mart on Sunday evening.
"We have a few leads," Kosman said. "We are still seeking help from the public."
As Saghir and his brother were leaving the store around 6 p.m., two men confronted them and tried to force them back inside.
On Monday, police released a surveillance video that captured the encounter. At one point, the gunman is shown firing a shot that misses Saghir. The video was edited to remove the fatal shot. After the shooting, the two men were seen fleeing on foot.
Sam's Tobacco was also robbed at gunpoint in November. A different clerk was working behind the counter then, and police never made in arrests in connection with that crime.
The shop is on busy Irving Park Road near O'Hare International Airport. On Tuesday, Bensenville police removed the crime scene tape draped around the entire strip mall and allowed the other businesses to reopen.
Outside of Sam's, someone had placed a bouquet of flowers. A candle was burning near a dozen roses.
