Roxbury Store Clerk Murdered in Armed Robbery

Boston Police are looking for two armed men who shot and killed 71 year old store clerk Gerald Serrano at Hermanos Unidos convenience store in Roxbury, Massachusetts, yesterday morning. It is reported that the clerk was shot because he resisted the demands of the robbers.

Boston Police have not disclosed how much money the two armed robbers were able to get away with, if any. Both armed suspects have been described as black males, one wearing all black and the other wearing all red, each with hooded sweatshirts.

The murder of Gerald Serrano comes only two months after the murder of Surendra Dangol, who was also shot and killed at his convenience store in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. Arrested for that murder was Edward Corliss, who had been previously convicted of killing another store clerk in Salisbury in 1973. Edward Corliss had been released in 2006 by the Massachusetts Parole Board for that 1973 murder.

This incident marks the City of Boston’s sixth murder of 2010.
