The death of 83-year-old Gary Rasor, a Home Depot employee who died from injuries he suffered while trying to stop a robbery, has gained national attention and the suspect who killed the man is still on the loose.

Gary Rasor is seen on surveillance footage below, stepping up to confront a man wheeling three Ryobi pressure cookers out of the Hillsborough store on Oct. 18 — only to be shoved to the ground by the thief, who then casually strolls away.

Rasor was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he celebrated his 83rd birthday and made hopeful plans to see his new grandchild for the first time, his wife told WNCN, but the man died on December 1 from injuries suffered.

The North Carolina medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide.

Warning: The Video Below Is Graphic

The suspect, a black man about 6 feet tall, fled the scene in a white, four-door Hyundai Sonata with an obscured North Carolina temporary tag.

Hillsborough police in North Carolina are investigating the case and requesting information from the public that will assist in identifying the person responsible. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hillsborough Investigator Andrew Jones by email or at 919-296-9562.
