Security Cameras Catch Men in Fatal Robbery
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Alabama -- The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office today released pictures investigators said show two men who are believed involved in a fatal robbery attempt Sunday night.
Security cameras from a gas station show a man in red, believed to be the shooter, and man in black, who was in the car with the man in red and is described as a person of interest.
The two are sought in the shooting death of Henry Lamar Smoot, 27.
Sheriff's deputies were called to the BP service station on Center Point Parkway near 23rd Avenue N.W. just after 8 p.m. They found Smoot beside a vehicle in the parking lot, suffering from a gunshot wound.
Chief Deputy Randy Christian said the shooter got into Smoot's vehicle, shot him and then fled on foot. Smoot was able to get out of his car before collapsing in the parking lot.
A small, gray car was seen driving away and may be involved.
Christian said marijuana and cash were recovered at the scene.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 325-1450.
