The second suspect is described as a 30-year-old black male with a thin build wearing a gray sweatshirt and black jeans with designs on the pockets.

Anyone with information about the identity of either one of the suspects is encouraged to contact the Oak Park Police Department at 708-434-1636.


  1. At what time did this occur? How come nearby residents were not notified of an armed suspect in the area? I live within eyesight of this 7-11 and did not hear about this incident until today.
