Police ID Second Suspect In Robbery, Fatal Shooting At Aldi

The public is asked to call (312) 747-8272 if they have information.

CHICAGO (CBS) – Police have identified a second suspect in last week’s robbery and fatal shooting inside an Aldi store but do not have the man in custody.

Detectives have an arrest warrant for Michael E. Smith, 30, in connection with the Nov. 10 robbery and homicide at the 9017 S. Halsted grocery story, police announced Thursday.

The public is asked to call (312) 747-8272 if they have information.

Another suspect charged in the case earlier this week apparently committed suicide while in police custody.  Police say Develt Bradford, 52, was found hanged in a holding cell at the Calumet District police station, 727 E. 111th St.

In the two-man crime, which was recorded by surveillance cameras, the armed suspects entered the Aldi store and announced a robbery. A security guard was fatally shot, and a female customer was wounded in the leg.
