Police Seek Suspect In "Senseless" Murder Over Cigar In Akron Featured

Written by

A 21 year old clerk at Border's Drive Through at 1365 South Arlington Street in Akron was killed late Tuesday night by a customer who wanted a particular kind of cigar, and tried to use a bill that wasn't in acceptable condition to pay for it.

Police say the man, who walked up to the drive through window, started arguing with the clerk, pulled a gun, and demanded a Black& Mild cigar. Then, even though the clerk gave it to him; the suspect still shot him before running away.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's office has identified the clerk as Ahmad Alibrahim, of Akron, and they say he died as the result of a gunshot wound to the neck. 

Now police are looking for the killer, who is described as a black male around 18-25 years old, in what they are calling an "incredibly senseless" tragedy.
