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.

        The only good ones are the dead ones.

    Hopefully, someone will accidentally leave something in this clowns holding cell that he can use to hang himself with too, and he’ll do it just like his friend did.

    It’ll be a waste of taxpayer money to feed, cloth and shelter this waste of humanity for however long his sentence would be.

      U SUCK!

    • Chaim Chitterling

      Yes, we hardworking taxpayers waste enough money on the ones collecting welfare and section 8 we shouldn’t have to waste anymore on the murdering ones too.

      @me, How can you possibly defend a vicious low life black African negro like this guy? What is the matter with you?

    Great work once again by the Chicago Police. As you read this they are tracking this wannabe thug down, like the animal he is. So Michael watched 3 hours of Grand Theft Auto and all of a sudden he has a great idea! We’ll take down the Aldi’s and kill the security guard.

      Bob While I do agree that a lot of these video games aren’t a positive influence on our youth and should be removed from the shelves. We gotta remember in no way should 3 hours of GTA take away a life time of positive reinforcement and teaching right from wrong. After X number of hours the person is still responsible for their actions not a video game. So given that game is there and is not going away we have to teach our children that their are Consequences to those action most children that are 18 plus do understand this.

    These pieces of wasted flesh think that there owned something so that try to take what they want fro working people…The Old PUNK took the easy way out why didn’t he kill him self first instead of the Security Guard trying to make a living for his family!!..I hope when they catch this PUNK he will get get lot in the system for a long time!
