Mohammad Eid
He worked at his family's convenience store in Joliet. 

At about 3:00 p.m., two men entered the store and demanded money.  One had a gun. Mohammad pulled out his own gun and started firing. 

Mohammad was shot in the chest and killed in the exchange of gunfire as was one of the suspects, Troy Norris, age 24.  Troy Norris was on parole and had been arrested by the Police 15 times in recent years. 

The second suspect fled the scene and escaped. 

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 815-724-3020 or anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 800-323-6734.

Many of his customers and friends knew Mohammad as "Mo".  He is the son of the store's owner. 

Customers stated that Mohammad knew many of them by name and was an all-around good man.  He was pleasant, kind and helpful. He had a sense of humor and was a joker.  He would often give the local kids candy or chips. He was
Angels of God, pray for Mohammad and for those
who have lost him
just trying to do his job. 

We put this question to the thief who killed Mohammad:  What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

Mohammad's loved ones are devastated over his senseless and tragic death. He will be forever mourned.

Mohammad is survived by many loving friends and family members. 

Pray for justice for Mohammad. 

Pray for all who go to work and who die there.

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

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