Three Convenience Store Robberies, One Woman Dead
Lubbock police are investigating a murder that happened over night at a 7-11 convenience store. Police believe the suspects who killed her are also linked to two other convenience store robberies in town.
They released three pictures from the Robbery at the E-Z Mart at 50th and Chicago. Police said the suspects and actions in that robbery are similar to the circumstances in the murder of Garcia.
One picture shows a view of the Fat Albert emblem on the suspect's shirt. Another shows the suspect pointing the shotgun at the clerk . Police want you to pay close attention to the purse and the gun in the photo's. Police hope the images will trigger someone's memory about who carries the items that could bring in new leads.
Lubbock Police Department, Corp. Doug Sutton said, "Our victim, Patricia Garcia, obviously a mother, her children want this case solved, we want this case solved and we know the public out there, somebody has details."
