Police Searching For Suspected Killer

Lubbock Police are asking for your help to find the man involved in a fatal shooting at a local convenience store.  Police say the suspect shot and killed 21-year-old Chase Pendleton at the 711 at 34th and Memphis around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.

The shooter is described as a white man, 6' tall, around 190 lbs. Detectives tell NewsChannel 11 that they do not believe the suspect knew the victim, but right now they are still investigating. They say a fight at the store appears to have started the violence.

Store surveillance footage shows the victim, Pendleton walking into the 711 around 1:16 a.m. Monday.  

According to detectives, the suspect was outside gassing up his car at the time. The suspect walks inside the store a short time later with another man in a blue shirt.

Police reports state Pendleton was with two other men.  The surveillance video shows him, standing near the suspect and talking to two men. The group crosses in front of the suspect, and one of the men with Pendleton appears to push the suspect.

Pendleton waits by the door, and the suspect walks past him. It doesn't appear that the suspect says anything to Pendleton. 

Police say the suspect went to his car, and got a gun.  As Pendleton leaves with the group, you can see the suspect walk up to him and then fire.

Pendleton falls, while the men he is with run inside.  Police say another man, 21-year-old Marcus Smith was also shot in the arm.

The suspect's apparent acquaintance, the man in the blue shirt, runs out of the store quickly. 

NewsChannel 11 arrived on scene moments later. Paramedics rushed Pendleton to University Medical Center, as police questioned witnesses trying to determine what happened.  Pendleton later died at UMC.

Again, police still need you help to identify the shooter.  If you know have any information about the suspect or the shooting, you are asked to call Crime Line at (806)741-1000.
