Store owner fatally shot

Posted on May 14, 2009. Filed under: Illinois, murder |

Chicago, IL – On Thursday night, Norton, 55, of unincorporated Glen Ellyn, was found shot to death in the rear of his store, his hands bound and a bullet through the back of his head. Police are calling the incident robbery-related. No one was in custody Friday evening.

Recently, Norton had told gang members allegedly selling drugs to get out of an apartment above his store, family and neighbors said. They in turn threatened to “break his legs” and even take his life, they said.

Last week, someone fired a gun into the North Avenue side of Norton’s corner store. Norton, who owned the building, told neighbors that he believed the angry tenants were responsible. On Friday, a bullet hole remained visible in the window behind a metal window gate. More on Chicago Tribune
