New Video Shows Suspect in Robbery, Fatal Beating at D.C. Convenience Store
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Police in D.C. have released new surveillance footage in hopes of finding the suspects they say killed a convenience store owner in Northwest Washington over the Fourth of July weekend.
The new footage shows a man — described by police as one of the two suspects — walking in the store, located in the 5500 block of Colorado Avenue NW, on the evening of July 4.
Police say the suspect returned to the store about two hours later with another man. Masked and armed with guns, the two men allegedly robbed the cash register and beat James Oh, the store’s owner who was working at the time of the robbery.
Oh, 76, of Rockville, Maryland, suffered serious injuries and died July 8.
The suspects fled the store in a stolen Jeep Cherokee with D.C. tags DP6033. Police have since recovered the Jeep.
Previously released surveillance footage of the robbery shows the suspects — both black males — going behind the counter and beating the clerk before taking cash from the register.
Police are offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects in this case.
