Dallas police released video Monday afternoon of one of three suspects wanted for a robbery and murder at a Red Bird 7-Eleven. According to police, three teenagers approached Jorge Alberto Torres, 37, as he was filling up at about 10:45 Sunday night. The teens robbed and shot Torres, said Deputy Chief Thomas Castro of the Dallas Police Department.

In a video taken inside of the 7-Eleven, one of the suspects, wearing a white T-shirt with what Castro described as a unique design on the front, makes a purchase before heading back outside. Unreleased video taken outside the station shows the teens, including the one wearing the white shirt, pushing Torres before shooting him. Paramedics took Torres to a nearby hospital, where he died, according to police.

After killing Torres, the three teens ran away on foot, possibly to a nearby apartment complex, police said. The Woodhollow Apartments are a couple of blocks away from the crime scene on Ledbetter Drive.

DPD Detective Derick Chaney is investigating the murder. Anyone with any information that could identify the suspects is asked to call him at 214-671-3650.
