Assailants Sought In Deadly Convenience Store Robbery

The owner of a corner market store in Northwest Washington has died after an armed robbery in his store on July 4.

D.C. police were called to the scene in the 5500 block of Colorado Avenue NW Friday evening and found 76-year-old James Oh of Rockville, Maryland, suffering from trauma to the head.

According to police, two men entered the store and demanded money, and one of the men hit Oh on the head with his gun.

D.C. police are looking for the people responsible for the death. They say the two men left the scene in a black Jeep, which was stolen on July 4 and has since been recovered.
