Gunman Wearing “Shoot Til My Arm Falls Off” Shirt Sought In North Side Robberies

Two men, including one who sported a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words “SHOOT TIL MY ARM FALLS OFF” robbed four convenience stores and restaurants at gunpoint early Saturday, police said.

The hold-ups were reported in areas west of our immediate neighborhood: Belmont Cragin; Logan square; Irving Park; and Avondale.

Both men entered the businesses, displayed a handgun, and took cash before fleeing in a dark-colored SUV, investigators said.

The suspects are described as Hispanic men between 18- and 40-years old who stand between 5’3″ and 5’8″ tall. One was heavier than the other.

Police said the incidents happened in the 6500 block of West Belmont at 2:07 a.m.; the 3200 block of West Diversey at 2:55 a.m.; the 4300 block of West Irving Park Road at 3:15 a.m.; and the 3000 block of North Pulaski at 3:41 a.m.

Anyone with information about these men is asked to call Area North detectives at 312.744.8263.
