Keshawn Marzette, 15, of the 8300 block of South Throop Street, and William Larson, 17, of the same address, were pronounced dead on the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Citing preliminary information, authorities said two people walked into the store, and one of them hopped over the counter.
That person hit the clerk standing behind the counter, while the other remained in front of the counter, authorities said.
Meanwhile, a relative of the store owner heard a commotion upstairs and saw the robbery suspects from a stairwell, authorities said.
He pulled out a gun and opened fire on the two, killing them, authorities said. At least one of them was armed with a gun.
Family members at the scene identified one of the suspects as Larson, 17.
Investigators were trying to determine if the teens had robbed at least two other stores in the area not long before trying to rob the liquor store. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-two-robbers-shot-to-death-20160109-story.html#nt=outfit
Sadly, if these thugs are committing possibly numerous armed robberies at such a young age, society is probably better off with the thugs dead as opposed to being in and out of prison for their entire life along with them spreading their sperm to 1 or more women and society paying for those kids.
So, good shooting to the store employee and just remember, if Obama and other gun nuts had their way, this store employee would not be allowed to legally to have their gun to protect themselves.
On another note from the Tribune: Someone at the liquor store in the immediate aftermath of the shooting had taken a photo of the two bodies: one whose face is visible, eyes and mouth open; another in blood-spattered jeans next to a thick pool of blood. A gun lies on a mat next to racks of pork rinds and bottled water.
The cops should show these pictures to every thug in Chicago and other cities to show the possibility what can happen if the thugs decide to rob or act like thugs in other ways.
