The robbery and homicide happened at Chippewa Street and Alfred Avenue at a Quick Stop Convenience and Wireless store run by Haris Gogic and his brother Mirza Gogic, 23.
The armed robber came into the store just after 11:30 a.m., officials say, and as one of the brothers grabbed a baseball bat, the suspect opened fire and shot Mirza Gogic in the arm -- and Haris Gogic in the head.
The police department sent out this surveillance photo of the suspect:
Officials say the suspect is a black male with a dark complexion and slim build, is approximately six feet tall in late twenties to early thirties and has a mustache and goatee. He was wearing a grey shirt, grey pants and grey baseball cap as seen in the surveillance photo.

The two brothers reportedly opened up the store at the front of their home a few years ago and are part of a large Bosnian family.
