ROBBINS (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Photographs have been released of three people whom investigators want to identify and interview about a fatal shooting at a Robbins bar earlier this month.

Security guard Jemel Roberson, 26, was shot and killed at Manny's Blue Room by a police officer from neighboring Midlothian.

There had been a gunman in the bar Nov. 11, and four people were shot.

Several details are unclear, including whether the police officer was told or knew that Roberson was security; when the officer started shooting and whether the officer gave proper instructions to Roberson.

The bar shooting was being investigated by Cook County sheriff’s officers, who were seeking the three individuals for information.

The fatal shooting involving the Midlothian officer was being handled by Illinois State Police.

Anyone with information about the individuals was asked to call detectives at 708-865-4896.
