    Liquor store clerk kills two robbers

    A liquor store employee who shot and killed two would-be robbers at the South Side business over the weekend is not likely to face criminal charges.

    The employee shot two teens, 15 and 17, inside Z&S Food & Liquor, 1351 W. 87th St., when they tried to rob the store around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, authorities said.

    Monday afternoon, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed the department doesn’t anticipate the store employee will be charged in the shooting. But he had no other immediate information.

    According to authorities, the two teens walked into the store, and one of them hopped over the counter. That teen hit a clerk standing behind the counter, while the other remained in front of the counter, authorities said.

    Meanwhile, the employee who eventually opened fire -- who is a relative of the store owner -- heard a commotion upstairs and saw the robbery suspects from a stairwell, authorities said.

    He pulled out a gun and opened fire on the two, killing them, authorities said. At least one of them was armed with a gun.

    The robbery suspects were identified as Keshawn Marzette, 15, and William Larson, 17, both of the 8300 block of South Throop Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. They were dead on the scene.

    Autopsies Sunday determined both died of multiple gunshot wounds, and their deaths were classified as homicides, the medical examiner’s office said.

    Investigators were trying to determine if the teens had robbed at least two other stores in the area not long before trying to rob the liquor store.

    The store was the site of a previous robbery in which a suspect was shot to death in a struggle for a gun and a clerk wounded by a second robber on Aug. 11, 2011. The employee who killed the two suspects in Saturday’s shooting wasn’t involved in the 2011 incident.
