HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) - Police are still searching for the man they say killed a Toys "R" Us employee inside a Hamburg store. Monday morning there are only grainy images of who police say that man is.
It is supposed to be a place of fun and excitement, but this weekend the Toys "R" Us in Hamburg became the scene of a nightmare. Police are still looking for the man who killed the store's assistant manager on Saturday.
Hamburg Police Detective Scott Kashino said, "We're currently treating this investigation as a homicide and we are asking for the public's help, in helping to identify the perpetrator."
Hamburg Police need your help identifying the man seen in these surveillance photos. Police say the man snuck into the Toys "R" Us on McKinley Avenue early Saturday morning and murdered the assistant manager 35-year-old Laurence Wells.
"It looks like he forced himself in through one of these front doors," said Kashino.
The man went undetected by several employees and made his way to the manager's office around 4:30, where police say he disabled the surveillance cameras and attacked Wells. However, he didn't make a completely clean escape.
Kashino said, "The guy that committed this murder was wearing this hat inside the building. That's why it's important."
The hat may be the best piece of evidence left at the scene. You can see the hat in WIVB.com's photo gallery from the scene. Police describe it as a 2007 Florida Gators National Championship baseball cap. They will be testing it for DNA in hopes of discovering the suspected killer.
Hamburg Police still don't have any suspects. If you have any information or recognize the surveillance photos or the baseball cap contact Hamburg Police. Crimestoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to this suspect's arrest.
