The victim was killed on the sidewalk outside an American Deli just before 4 p.m. Thursday on Hill Street. The busy stretch of road is near the Grant Park neighborhood, an I-20 onramp and Oakland Cemetery.

Channel 2′s Michael Seiden was at the scene Thursday afternoon, where he obtained video of the moments the gunman started shooting.


Video shows the suspect, who hasn’t been identified, run up and around gas pumps at a Shell station and start firing at the victim, who is walking about 50 yards away.

Channel 2 Action News is not showing footage of the victim.

As shots ring out, terrified customers scramble for cover, some ducking behind and into cars. The suspect, who has not been identified, then runs from the scene.

Police are still working to find the shooter. They have not identified the victim other than to give his age.

On Friday, Channel 2′s Elizabeth Rawlins obtained new surveillance video from the Texaco gas station showing the chaos that unfolded after the shooting.

“I saw two guys standing next to each other then heard the shots,” Sascha Nazario said.

Many bystanders can be seen running for cover in the surveillance video,

“We saw the guy run past us down the street,” witness Anya Declaremore said.

Investigators believe this all started as a dispute which began at the deli and continued into the parking lot of the shell gas station next door.

“I heard a bunch of gunshots, like five or six and everyone stopped,” said Nazario.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released. Investigators do not have a suspect in custody.
