Bensenville police announce $10,000 reward for information about fatal shooting

BENSENVILLE – The Bensenville Police Department announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, prosecution and conviction of the people responsible for a fatal shooting last month.

Hussein Saghir, 36, of Chicago, was shot outside Sam's Tobacco and Food Mart, 235 W. Irving Park Road, about 6 p.m. Jan. 19.

At the time, officers responded to the scene and found Saghir, the store's clerk, on the ground in front of the store. He was taken to the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A review of the surveillance video from the store shows Saghir and another store employee were exiting the store when they were confronted by two men. During a brief struggle, one of the men shot at Saghir before they both fled on foot east bound from the store.

Both offenders are described as black men, 17 to 22 years of age, 5 foot, 3 inches to 5 foot, 5 inches tall, clean shaven and between 130 to 150 pounds. The shooter was wearing a red or maroon hoodie with a white, large text Abercrombie logo on the left sleeve and blue jeans believed to be of the True Religion brand. The second offender was wearing a black hoodie with a front logo on it having a large, almost chest width rectangular, white background with black cursive-style writing on it believed to be a Mossimo logo.

A vehicle is observed on video leaving the drive at the east side of the building shortly thereafter. It is suspected that the offenders entered and fled in the van east bound from the scene. The van is believed to be a light colored, tan, beige, or silver/gray, 2001 to 2003 Ford Windstar.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Bensenville Police Department at 630-
