Police Release Surveillance Photos Of Suspects In Murder Of Yvonne Ruzich, 70, In Hegewisch

CHICAGO (CBS)-- Chicago police released surveillance photos of the shooters who fatally shot Yvonne Ruzich, 70, in her car in Hegewisch Monday.

Surveillance video from around 4:30 a.m. shows Yvonne Ruzich parked - getting ready to go into work, at Baltimore Food, Deli and Liquor, and talking to one of her sons through the window of his car — when another vehicle pulls up. Two people get out of that car and immediately start shooting at Yvonne Ruzich.

Her son was able to drive off. Ruzich accelerated down the street, but crashed, and a witness said the men came back and shot her again. Ruzich died at a local hospital.
