Surveillance: Back Bay Market Robbery

Armed robbery left store clerk dead.

Surveillance photos released Sunday show two suspects wearing Spider Man and Grim Reaper masks are likely responsible for a Fort Myers armed robbery that left a convenience store clerk dead, authorities say.

Lee County sheriff's deputies said Sunday they could not disclose the manner in which victim Muhammad Ali, 29, of Cape Coral, died at Back Bay Market. Deputies are searching for two black suspects, but no other description was available.

Deputies were called to the Back Bay Market at 394 Ortiz Avenue shortly before 2 a.m. The convenience store was open at the time of the robbery.

Officials are asking the public to help identify anyone who might have recently bought or had the masks by calling the Sheriff's Office at (239) 477-1000.

If you know anyone that has recently purchased or possessed these types of masks, or if you know anything about this deadly armed robbery, contact the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at (239) 477-1000. To remain anonymous and possibly receive a cash reward of up to $1,000, call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
