From the police department’s press release:

On August 9, 2010, at approximately 3:35 a.m., officers from the Northern District responded to the 7-Eleven store located in the 7700 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie for a report of a sick/injured subject.

Upon arrival, officers located the victim, a male store clerk, lying on the ground inside of the store having sustained apparent gunshot wound(s) to the upper torso. The victim, Youssef Kamal Erian Attia, 48, of the unit block of Holloway Road in Glen Burnie, Maryland, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Detectives from the Homicide Unit responded to the scene to assume responsibility for the investigation. Through the investigation and evidence collected at the scene, officers determined that three male suspects entered the store and announced a robbery. At a certain point, the male clerk attempted to flee the store and was subsequently shot by one of the suspects, who was armed with an apparent handgun. The suspects fled the store on foot and were observed heading north on Marley Neck Boulevard. Several officers and a K-9 unit canvassed the area, but were unable to locate the suspects.

At this time, it is unclear if the suspects were able to obtain any money from the store. The motive appears to be robbery and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Detective Regina Gow of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3417 or call the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610. Additionally, to remain anonymous, contact Metro Crime Stoppers. (see information at the bottom of the release)
