Investigators said Jaquel Raheem Carruth, 24, is charged with capital murder for the death of Jhon Dias, 26 back in March 2022. 

Surveillance video released by the Houston PD, shows a man dressed in all black with a hoodie and face mask entering the convenience store and walking around. The man, later identified as Carruth then heads to the register, pulls out a gun, and points it through a small portion of the plastic barrier.

Authorities said Carruth shot Dias in the right shoulder and a gunshot went through his chest before running away.

On July 13, officials said in a press release shared Wednesday, the Harris County District Attorney's Office was consulted and charged the 24-year-old with capital murder. He was later arrested in Lithonia, Georgia, where authorities said he remains but is awaiting extradition back to Harris County.
