Reward offered in River North murder

October 18, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Bassam Naoum, 59, was shot to death Saturday night inside his store at North Orleans and West Oak.

Police are ruling out robbery as a motive because some valuable items and money were left behind.

Family and friends held a vigil Monday night in front of the store where Naoum was killed. Hundreds came to honor 59-year-old Bassam Naoum. Candles were lit and the crowd was told how the man known as "Ollie" supported the community.

Basoum was a Jordanian immigrant who came to this country 40 years ago.
