CHICAGO – A 38-year-old man was shot and killed on his way to work this morning in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Elijah Murphy was reporting to work at City Foods at 43rd and Racine around 5:45 Thursday morning.  Police say he was murdered execution-style by two gunmen.

Richard  Wiencek is a co-worker of Murphy's who saw him get gunned down this morning.

He says Murphy's daughter, who is pregnant, was dropping him off for his 6 a.m. shift. She was unharmed.

Wiencek said the gunmen’s faces were concealed and they waited in a Dodge SUV for Murphy to arrive for work.

“They were waiting for him. They know what's going on,” Wiencek told WGN News.

The company tells WGN News that the murder was all captured on video from this camera which has been turned over to police.
