 A store clerk remarked to a would-be robber, "I'm going to die anyway." Same for all of us, someday, was the point being made last night inside Citgo, 3401 Milwaukee St. The employee's response came after the man announced: "There's bombs everywhere and if you don't give me all the money, everyone is going to die." The employee wasn't buying it, and refused to turn over any cash. Frustrated, the man, whose face was bound tightly in the hood of a sweatshirt, knocked a lottery display off a counter before running off. He is described as being white, 5'9", with a slender build. The sweatshirt and sweatpants he wore were gray. His sneakers were dark. A similarly described and attired man created a disturbance inside Woodman's, 3817 Milwaukee St., earlier in the night while attempting to steal alcohol.
