BELLEVILLE, Ill. — The Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis is investigating after a gas station worker was shot and killed during an attempted robbery Saturday night.

The incident happened at around 10:40 p.m. at the ZX gas station, located at 420 Carlyle Avenue. The victim, 51-year-old Douglas W. Cimperman, was working at the gas station at the time of the incident.

The Major Case Squad said the suspect was attempting to commit an armed robbery at the time of Cimperman’s death. The suspect ran away from the gas station after shooting Cimperman, investigators said. The suspect is still wanted by police.


Police are looking for a single suspect still at large. He’s described as a black male, wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt and black pants, who reportedly fled the gas station on foot after the shooting.
