Have you seen this guy?

Police say he's the robber who killed store clerk Moustafa Shaker during a stickup inside a North Philadelphia convenience market early Thursday.

Quasheam Richburg, 20, of Ridge Drive off of 27th Street in North Philadelphia, faces murder charges in the 3 a.m. attack on Shaker, 50, inside Trax Foods, a market under the El station on Front Street near Girard Avenue.

Shaker, an Egyptian immigrant and father of two, was on the midnight-to-8 shift at Trax Foods when two gunmen stormed the store early Thursday and announced a robbery. Shaker refused to give them money, so one shot him in the face. He died on the scene. Another store clerk was uninjured.
