7-Eleven clerk killed in Md. robbery

Anne Arundel police are investigating the shooting death early Monday of Youssef Kamal Erian Attia, 48, of the unit block of Holloway Road in Glen Burnie.

Officers found Attia dead inside the 7-Eleven in the 7700 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie at about 3:35 a.m. when they were called for a report of an injured person.

Investigators said Attia, a clerk, attempted to flee from three male suspects who had entered the store and announced a robbery. He was found suffering from gunshot wounds to the torso and pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The suspects ran from the scene headed north on Marley Neck Boulevard and police said it was unclear if they had taken money.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Detective Regina Gow of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3417 or call the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610.

Can we get a description of the suspects, or perhaps a picture from the security camera?

Kinda hard to help the police look for suspects when we don't know who we're looking for.

I frequent this 7-Eleven often and always remember the owner being extremely friendly.I imagine the suspects are not far and are hiding in that sketchy residential area not far from the store. a description would be helpful.This is sad and a sign of the times.The youths today have no direction, regard for life, or for themselves.

A disturbibg trend of the Post is that when it reports a crime that occurs in Prince Georges County, the headline ALWAYS includes the County's name. Reports of crime elsewhere in MD is simple noted as "Maryland".

Wait and see. When caught they will be transplants from the city who have parents using the voucher system for housing. Once again your tax dollars at work and a kind soul lost.

I'm sure the suspects when eventually caught will be from PG County.

I knew Youssef. He was a great man. I went in the store the night before to get a couple sodas. He rang me up and it is just hard to believe he is now gone. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. Youssef, you will be greatly missed, my friend.

So tragic. Rest in peace, Youssef Kamal Erian Attia.

Wash Post, what county in Maryland did this specific crime occur?

You usually offer that in the heading. Why not this time?
