Dallas PD Releases Video of Oak Cliff Store Owner's Shooting In Hopes of Catching Suspects
Late on July 3 Dallas Police sent word that two men had shot to death an Oak Cliff convenience store owner ... over two boxes of onions. As Byron Harris noted a day later, Quick Check Grocery's Jin Ha was beloved by folks living near the store at Illinois Avenue and Overton Road; said one customer, "It didn't matter if you was a drunk, a crack head, she treated everybody the same."
Three days later, one of three men suspected in the shooting was arrested: Robert Roberson. Police said they were close to charging two others. But in the weeks since, they remain at large. Which is why Oak Farms Dairy announced today it's upping the reward money leading to the arrest and indictment of the two suspects, adding to Crime Stopper's initial $5,000 another $10,000. And that's why DPD this morning released the video of the shooting, along with the names and photos of the two suspects: 17-year-old Don Williams and 19-year-old Lamarcus Mathis.
Per the police: "Anyone with information about these suspects, or this offense, is asked to contact the Dallas Police Departments Homicide Unit at (214) 671-3661 or Crime Stoppers at (214) 373-8477 or through iWatch which can be accessed at www.dallaspolice.net."
