$10,000 reward in '11 murder of Chester gas station owner

CHESTER, Pa - December 7, 2013

Nearly two years has gone by since the shooting death of Sunoco A-Plus owner Mohammed Fareed.

The 56-year-old manned the store at 9th and Kerlin streets in Chester, Delaware County.

On Friday December 9th, 2011, Fareed went out to put gas in his personal vehicle.

"About 4:00 a.m. the owner is approached, a robbery goes bad, and he gets shot in the stomach," said John Apeldorn, Citizens Crime Commission.

When officers arrived, Fareed was conscious and speaking.

"He gives a description of the perpetrator. He said it was a young black male, he had on a white ski cap and also a sweatshirt with a hood, he couldn't tell the color it was like a multi-color faded type of thing," said Apeldorn.

Fareed later died from his injuries. However a witness was able to support Fareed's description to police.

Now a $10,000 reward hopes to bring someone forward who can help solve this case.

"Give us the information, we solve the case, arrest and conviction, and you get the cash," said Apeldorn.

All you have to do is call the Citizens Crime Commission at 215-546-TIPS (8477). All calls will remain anonymous.
