Davis, 20-year-old Kenneth Bardlett and at least one other accomplice encountered clerk Hussein Saghir, 36, outside Sam's Tobacco and Food Mart at 235 W. Irving Park Rd. in Bensenville on Jan. 19 as he was leaving for the evening, prosecutors allege.

Surveillance video showed Saghir and another employee exiting the store when two men confronted them, according to a release from Bensenville police. There was a brief struggle, during which one of the men pulled out a handgun and shot Saghir, according to the release. Prosecutors say Davis drove the group off in a car after the shooting.

Saghir, of Chicago, was taken to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Police are seeking a third person in connection with the shooting who is thought to have fired the shot that killed Saghir, according to the state's attorney's office

Bardlett, a Bellwood resident, was charged on Feb. 11 in connection to the shooting with one count of first-degree murder and one count of attempted armed robbery, prosecutors said.

Bardlett was ordered held on $2.5 million bond as well, according to the DuPage County Sheriff's office.
