A 70-year-old Chicago woman was ambushed and shot dead by two gunmen while she sat in her car outside her job — with shocking surveillance video capturing the attack.
Yvonne Ruzich was sitting in her vehicle shortly before 4:30 a.m. Monday waiting for the grocery store where she worked to open when the two men in hoodies walked up to her and opened fire, video released by Chicago police shows.
The wounded woman then hit the gas and crashed into a street sign — where the two men caught up with her and shot her multiple times.
Ruzich, a retired city sanitation worker, was pronounced dead at a local hospital, WMAQ-TV said in a report Tuesday.
Police have not determined a motive for the deadly early-morning attack outside Baltimore Food and Liquors in Chicago’s South Side — and are asking the public to help track down the suspects.
“Yvonne was the kindest person,” city Alderwoman Susan Sadlowski Garza told the outlet, noting that Ruzich was well-known and well-liked in the community.
“She was the face, she was the person of Baltimore Foods when you went in, which I just saw her Friday,” she said. “Every single person that came in here, she made feel special.”
