A pair of youthful robbers had their criminal careers cut short when they attempted to rob Z&S Food and Liquor in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. The robbers entered the store and announced that they intended to rob it. When one of the robbers drew a gun, the owner shot both robbers. They died at the scene.
The Cook County medical examiner identified the robbers as Keshawn Marzette, 17, and William Larson, 15. Both resided on the 8300 block of South Throop. Police had arrested Marzette 30 times previously. A week prior to the robbery, Marzette stole a BMW from a neighbor and crashed it. Larson had been arrested four times in the last six months.
