Dallas Police have arrested two men who they say helped a third suspect to kill a man in a northeast Dallas liquor store on January 28.

Per The Dallas Morning News, an arrest warrant states Undray Devon Ross, 28, and Eric Charles Walker, 26, were jailed in connection with the murder of Cedrick White.

Authorities say 34-year-old White was fatally beaten and shot last month at Cindy’s Liquor Store, located in the 6500 block of Skillman Street. Responding officers found him with multiple gunshot wounds and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Demontaye Deshone Nixon, 23, had already been arrested and charged with murder in connection to the killing in mid-February. Detectives allege 23-year-old Nixon shot White and slammed a display shelf on his head repeatedly.

An arrest warrant affidavit alleges that Walker and Ross were Nixon’s accomplices in the slaying. Walker is charged with conspiracy to commit murder, while Ross is charged with murder.

Walker allegedly approached White while he was playing games inside the store and asked for his phone number. White gave Walker his number, and the latter exited the store.

Nixon and Ross then parked at the store and got out. Nixon walked towards the corner of the building and gestured at Walker, per the affidavit.

The affidavit states that surveillance footage shows Walker running away, looking back at the store.

Meanwhile, the document alleges Nixon and Ross approached White in the gaming area and began assaulting him. Nixon is also accused of shooting the victim, after which the two then drove off.

The medical examiner’s office said White’s death was caused by a gunshot wound and a blunt force trauma to his head.

According to The Dallas Morning News, authorities said Walker’s phone records showed he had a prior arrangement with Nixon and Ross that “one or more of them” would help him with a murder.

Nixon, Ross, and Walker remain in the Dallas County Jail as of February 21, with each of the former’s bail set at $250,000 and the latter’s set for $500,000.
