Police issued an arrest warrant for 17-year-old Jayden Blanton, who they say was involved in the robbery and shooting death of a man at an Oak Cliff gas station Sunday.
The Dallas Police Department says that 37-year-old Jorje Alberto Torres bought a soda inside the 7-Eleven store on West Ledbetter at Hampton using a large amount of cash. He then went to fill his tank.
That’s when three people approached Torres in the parking lot around 10:45 p.m. when he was robbed and shot.
Police say Blanton was caught on surveillance camera standing behind Torres in line. Another video shows Blanton and two other people approaching Torres in the parking lot.
Blanton is accused of shooting Torres once in the shoulder, then standing over him and shooting him in the head before rifling through his pockets and taking his wallet. The three robbers fled on foot to a nearby apartment complex. Torres was taken to a hospital, where he died. No one has been arrested.
Anyone with information on this case or Blanton’s whereabouts should call Detective Derick Chaney, 214.671.3645.
