Surveillance video shows at least two suspects walked into a 7-Eleven in the 400-block of West State Street in Sycamore around 11:30 p.m. The video shows one of the men, who was wearing an American flag t-shirt threatened a clerk as he robbed the store.
During a struggle, the clerk was shot twice. The robbers took off in a white mid-sized vehicle, authorities said. The 45-year-old man was transported to Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb, where his condition stabilized. He is expected to recover.
