Remembering Nayyer Rana
Gas station clerk who died from gunshot wounds Tuesday morning is remembered by customers for being a nice man who would greet them with a smile.
Hours have passed since gas station clerk Nayyer Rana was shot and killed by an unknown suspect, but it’s clear from the many comments on Patch.com and on our Facebook page that he made an impression on the customers who purchased gas, soda, coffee and candy from him.
Rana, 56, never made it out of the gas station today. Police are seeking more information about the homicide and are asking anyone who has details to contact Detective Neumann at 262-524-3818.
Patch has attempted to contact the gas station owner to learn more information about who Rana was but the owner was busy with investigators. Here are some of the comments we’ve received about Rana:
