Two would-be robbers who were fatally shot at a liquor store in the Gresham neighborhood Saturday night have been identified as a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy, authorities said.
Keshawn Marzette, 15, of the 8300 block of South Throop Street, and William Larson, 17, of the same address, were pronounced dead on the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Autopsies Sunday determined both died of multiple gunshot wounds and their deaths were classified as homicides, the office said.
The two were shot to death by a store employee about 8:30 p.m. when they tried to rob Z&S Food & Liquor in the 1300 block of West 87th Street, sources said.

Reminds me of a joke I can’t recall. But the punch line, “Nice grouping, Daddy!” comes to mind.
Armed citizens making Chicago safer already?
Undoubtedly regular church goers on their way to college and well known for their sterling personalities and kindness to stray animals.
The justifiable needs to be in that sentence.

Wow, got two of them with a handgun. Great target acquisition.
Perhaps the UTES should have tried a paper route before resorting to felonious crimes?
Quite amazing the energy, risk that people take to steal. Crime actually pays very poorly, and the risks are sky high.
Getting a job seems such a better alternative...

The killing of any human is a homicide. In this case, the homicide was justifiable.
What a beautiful story. Such a happy ending.. I’m having to wipe a tear.
The term homicide comes first. After the cops and prosecutors are done with the investigation, then the justifiable gets tacked on.
Homicide only means death was due to being killed by a person.
No guilt attached.
Sorry, didn’t mean to pile on. I should have read the rest of the thread first.
Puzzled me too - we may not have seen the end of this.
Two more of Obama’s sons. Didn’t know he had that many.
There was another robber killed in that store earlier. One bystander commented that the store owners don’t “mess around” with thieves in their business. I guess not and now three would-be college students, in the process of changing their lives, are now off to the great liquor store in the sky.
