Industry Group Offers $50,000 Reward in Detroit store Owner's Shooting Death


Fred Dally was killed Tuesday.

By Gina Damron

A $50,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrests of those responsible for gunning down the owner of the Medicine Chest on Detroit's west side Tuesday as he opened his business.

The Associated Food and Petroleum Dealers, which is offering the reward, identified the man as Fred Dally, owner of the Medicine Chest on Dexter and former chairman of the organization.

According to police, who did not identify the victim, the 63-year-old man was shot about 10 a.m. Police said two men were seen approaching the victim, and shots were fired in what appears to be a robbery attempt. Police could not confirm whether anything was taken.

"This is a sad loss for our AFPD family and the entire community," said Auday Arabo, president and CEO of the organization. "We must do something about the ongoing violence our store owners face while operating businesses in Detroit. Fred has been operating his store since the '70s, when the area was bustling with business. Today, he was among the few businesses servicing the community in this area."

No arrests had been made, police said Tuesday.

Arabo said Dally, who was married with children, was well-known in the community.

"He was actually probably one of the most wonderful human beings," Arabo said. "He really believed in Detroit and he stuck in through thick and thin."
