NEW HAVEN--Police have released surveillance video from a food mart at a Citgo gas station in New Haven that depicts the events that led up to a store clerk being shot to death.
The video shows the two suspects that allegedly shot and killed Sanjay Patel, 39, on Monday night.
The first suspect appears on screen first; he's previously been described as masked with black gloves, wearing a lighter gray hoodie with “Jordan” printed on the left sleeve and sneakers. He is said to have shot the victim with a revolver.
The first suspect walks in and lifts a gun up to eye level, pointed at the clerk. It appears that they both grab at something that appears to be the cash register, but then the suspect walks out of the screen.
The victim is still standing and moving after the first suspect moves off screen, indicating he had not yet been shot.
The second suspect then walked in; he's been described as masked with gloves, wearing a darker gray or darker blue sweatshirt with text printed on the front, dark or black pants and all or mostly white sneakers. He is said to have shot the victim with a semi-automatic handgun.
The video ends shortly after he walks up to the counter behind which the clerk was standing.
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the two suspects from the April 6 robbery and homicide. Police realize that the faces are obscured by masks, but ask the public to focus on the clothing the suspects are wearing.
