Haller — the manager — let them take the 100-dollar bill out of the till, but was still shot in the head.

“You took a father away, you took a husband away – we love our family, we stick together. The children miss their dad and I miss my husband. Turn yourself in, turn yourself in because you did not need to shot him in the head — you didn’t have to shot him,” cried Haller’s wife yesterday.

During a press conference held yesterday Detroit Police Chief James Craig said there were two witnesses; including a man who bumped into one of the suspects and someone else.

O’Reillys and Crime Stoppers announced a combined $12,500 reward yesterday.

Police are still searching for that second female suspect.
