Police in Virginia are looking for the two men behind an armed robbery on Christmas morning that killed a father of two and left another man wounded.
PEOPLE confirms with police in Prince William County that Yusuf Ozgur, 56, a delivery driver for DoorDash, was walking into a Denny’s restaurant in Manassas when the two men who’d just held it up shot and killed him.
Ozgur was headed in to the restaurant to pick up an order at around 2:30 a.m. on Christmas morning when he encountered the two suspects.
According to police, the two men had entered the Denny’s moments earlier — one with a gun, the other wielding a baton — and demanded the cell phones and wallets of the restaurant’s employees and patrons.
They also wanted cash from the eatery’s registers. However, police say they left without any money or property.
As they were fleeing the Denny’s, they fired upon a 34-year-old man who had defied their demands. That man was injured but is expected to recover from his wounds.
The two men were met outside by Ozgur. Police say the man with the baton struck Ozgur in the head before the man with the gun shot him.
A GoFundMe campaign has been created to help Ozgur’s wife and two children. It has already raised more than $50,000.
Police released video footage apparently showing the two suspects on the run.
