Fatal Robbery Caught on Tape

***UPDATE: Suspect in Robbery/Homicide was arrested on Saturday, August 25, 2007 at around 4:20 p.m., as he walked down the street near his home.

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police detectives have released video footage of a robber who fatally shot a man and critically injured a second victim during an attempted liquor store robbery in Hollywood.

The robbery occurred at the Limelight Liquor Store on July 19, 2007. Just before 6:30 p.m., a Black man posing as a customer walked into the store in the 1600 block of La Brea Avenue.

The clerk, Vladimir Akkerman, 69, was standing behind the counter near the cash register when the man asked him the price for a half gallon of milk. The suspect returned the milk to the refrigerator case and walked back to the stock room. There the suspect grabbed 39-year-old Pulod Davlatnazarov by the back of his shirt and walked him at gunpoint to the front counter.

The surveillance footage showed the gunman making demands and Akkerman trying to reason with him. Moments later, Akkerman reached to activate the alarm button and put his hands up. The suspect shot Akkerman in the stomach, then shot Davlatnazarov in the head. After the shootings, the suspect ran out of the store without taking anything, police said.

Davlatnazarov died at the scene. Akkerman was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

The suspect is 18-22 years old, 5'6" tall, 180 pounds. He had a short afro and was wearing wire rim prescription glasses. He was wearing a black oversized short sleeve T-shirt with a white T-shirt underneath.

Video footage of the crime is available to media outlets through Media Relations Section.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hollywood Homicide Detectives Vicki Bynum or Larry Cameron at 213-972-2902 or 972-2910 during normal business hours. On weekends and during off-hours, phone the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAW-FULL (529-3855).
