St. Louis metro police have a clear photo of a suspect who officials believe robbed a convenience store on Friday -- and shot two brothers in the process. The younger brother, Haris Gogic, nineteen, died later that day.

The robbery and homicide happened at Chippewa Street and Alfred Avenue at a Quick Stop Convenience and Wireless store run by Haris Gogic and his brother Mirza Gogic, 23.

The armed robber came into the store just after 11:30 a.m., officials say, and as one of the brothers grabbed a baseball bat, the suspect opened fire and shot Mirza Gogic in the arm -- and Haris Gogic in the head.

The police department sent out this surveillance photo of the suspect:

Officials say the suspect is a black male with a dark complexion and slim build, is approximately six feet tall in late twenties to early thirties and has a mustache and goatee. He was wearing a grey shirt, grey pants and grey baseball cap as seen in the surveillance photo.

Anyone with information can call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477).

The two brothers reportedly opened up the store at the front of their home a few years ago and are part of a large Bosnian family.

The younger brother is the 38th homicide victim in the city of St. Louis in 2013.

The older brother is expected to survive:
