Kwik Shop, Inc. Offers $25,000 Reward

Kwik Shop, Inc. recently announced they are offering a $25,000 reward for information resulting in an arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the recent homicide committed at their business.

On Thursday, July 7, 2016, at 1:30 a.m., members of the Lincoln Police Department were called to 2940 N. 14th Street on a reported robbery in progress at the convenience store. Multiple officers arrived and found Kwik Shop employee Robert Hanna unresponsive, with gunshot wound injuries. Despite immediate rescue attempts, 51-year-old Robert Hanna died at the scene.

Through witness accounts and review of video surveillance, the person responsible has been described as a black male, 52 - 56, with a medium build. He was wearing a black short sleeve t-shirt, camouflage pants, a black glove on his right hand and a white t-shirt or similar clothing item covering his head. He was armed with a dark colored handgun and was last seen fleeing southbound on foot from the store.

The Lincoln Police Department is seeking any information which may help to identify the suspect. A dedicated 24-hour hotline, 402.441.7718, has been established to field information in this case.

The reward offered by Kwik Shop, Inc. is separate and distinct from the $1,000 reward through Lincoln/Lancaster County Crime Stoppers.
