The victim, Myung Gin Shin, 32, was fatally wounded when two menheld up the restaurant about 4:30 p.m. last Wednesday.

When Shin struggled with one robber, the other man produced a small-caliber handgun and shot Shin in the face. The robbers fled with money stolen from the cash register, police said.

Shin, a husband and father of a 3-year-old daughter, died a few hours later at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore.

"It was a senseless, brutal act," said Homicide Detective Richard Garvey.

After the robbers left, one employee freed himself and got help, police said.
