A Toronto TV News Report About A Canadian Trucker Killed In Chicago

"After a long day on the road hauling freight from Canada, Gary Clarke headed to his brother's home in Englewood for a quick overnight visit before heading back north," the Tribune reported earlier this month.

"As Clarke locked up the truck [that] Tuesday in an empty lot next to the home, a group approached and demanded money, police said.

"Clarke said he didn't have any cash and someone pulled out a gun and fired, according to Clarke's older brother Andrew Jackson.

"'He started crying out for Jesus,' said Jackson, 41, who was standing outside when the shooting occurred. 'When I heard him say (that), I knew something was wrong.'

"Police found Clarke unresponsive at 8:15 p.m inside the white freight truck. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner's office. The cause of death was listed as a gunshot wound to the hip."

On Friday, Global Toronto aired this report.
