Worker at Michigan check cashing store shot in the face and suspect fled, cops said
One person faces murder charges after officials said he shot a worker in a Detroit-area check cashing store.
This week, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced that Paul McColor, 53, was charged with felony murder, larceny, two counts of felony firearm and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
He was charged in connection to the death of Saad Hannah Halabo, 53.
Around 4:15 p.m. on March 18, Michigan State Police responded to a Highland Park check cashing store for a reported shooting, according to prosecutors. Highland Park is in the Metro-Detroit area.
When troopers arrived, they found Halabo dead in the store with a gunshot wound to the face, according to prosecutors.
Investigators said McColor entered the store and went to the employee area. There, he got in an argument with Halabo and shot the victim. McColor fled the store and was arrested the next day.
