Sleiman Hallak

April 17, 1996

101 S. Meadowbrook Drive


Sleiman Hallak owned the Moonlight Market at Skyline and Meadowbrook for more than twenty years. He was known around the neighborhood as Pops. On Wednesday, April 17, 1996, at about 10:30 a.m., Hallak was working at the store counter waiting on a cigarette dealer when a black male armed with a gun entered the store and demanded that Hallak give up the money. When Hallak did not respond quickly enough, the suspect shot him to death and stole the money from the register and a handgun from the store.

There is a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this murder.
