Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Laundromat worker shot to death in attempted robbery
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A laundromat worker trying to defend his place of business ends up getting killed.
The case happened at the end of last year at a laundromat on 27th and Capitol, and detectives need your help before the case turns cold.
"The suspect entered the laundromat -- the victim works at the laundromat -- he attempted to rob the victim," said MPD Detective Ryan Bergemann. As he attempted to chase him out of the laundromat, the suspect turned around, brandished a firearm and shot the victim multiple times, killing him in the parking lot."
Take a look at the photos of the suspect who police say killed Carl Gray.
Police believe this man is from the area and has been seen around 27th and Capitol -- an area that's very busy and was also busy that day.
"What makes it unique, in my opinion, is that it happened in the middle of the week," said Detective Bergemann. "The laundromat had a lot of customers in there doing laundry. It shares the lot with McDonalds and Wendy's, lots of people in the drive-thru. It's a very egregious homicide in my opinion."
If you know the man in the photos, call Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.
Your call is always anonymous and if your tip leads to an arrest, you could get a cash reward.
