Kamran Yousaf - store clerk murdered in Sydney, Australia

Kamran Yousaf, age 28, died on October 12, 2013, at a fruit store in Sydney, Australia.

Two men barged into the store at about 3:45 p.m.  - one armed with a gun and one with a hammer. Kamran tried to prevent the thieves from stealing the cash register.

A number of staff members and at least six customers were present in the shop at the time.

A struggle ensued and Kamran was shot twice - in the head and in the stomach. When the police and paramedics arrived, life saving procedures were performed but Kamran died at the scene of the crime.

Kamran was from Gujrat, Pakistan. He was a Muslim. He had come to Sydney in December of 2012 to study for a Master’s degree in Professional Accounting at the King’s Own Institute, which is a business college in Sydney.

He was scheduled to return to Pakistan in late October to see his wife and his family.
Angels of God, pray for Kamran
He had gotten married 6 months ago in Pakistan.

Two suspects, Linh Dang, age 27, and Lance Lachlan Murdoch, age 27, of Villawood, have both been charged with murder and armed robbery.

Customers of the fruit shop describe Kamran as young, friendly and hard-working.

Kamran is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his parents and his wife. 

Pray for all who die because of their jobs.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father. Amen. 

Pray that Kamran is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
