At 8:15 p.m., on Tuesday, a 39-year-old Canadian truck driver was robbed by three men who shot and murdered him. Gary Clark was parked between a house and a vacant lot on the 5800 block of South Aberdeen Street in Chicago in the Englewood neighborhood.
The details are not all clear at this time, but witnesses have reported that the three men approached Clark, who was sitting in his truck, and tried to rob him. Seconds later, shots were fired.
“Police News Affairs said Clark was discovered in the cab of a semi truck parked between a house and the vacant lot. He was in the area visiting family, police said,” NBC Chicago reported.
The Chicago Sun Times has reported Clark was parked near his brother’s home.
Clarke’s brother Andrew Jackson told police that Clarke didn’t have any money but the men shot him anyway.
“He started crying out for Jesus,” said Jackson, 41. “When I heard him say (that), I knew something was wrong.” Jackson told the Chicago Tribune.
According to NBC Chicago, Clark was shot in the hip area and was transported to Stroger Hospital where he died.
At this time, suspect descriptions have not been released, but police are asking anyone who may have seen three men in the area of 58th and Aberdeen streets to call police.
