An innocent bystander was struck by a bullet after two men exchanged gunfire at a local convenience store on June 30. Now, police need the public’s help locating the two suspects, who were captured in a surveillance video shared by Dallas PD.

In the video, which shows the lead-up to the gunfire, the first suspect pulls into the gas station parking lot at 3444 E. Illinois Ave. in a gold SUV and makes a pass before turning around and coming back into the frame. A man then exits his vehicle and enters the store.

The second suspect arrives with another man and sits down at a gaming machine in the back of the store. After a few seconds, he stands up and enters the main shopping area.

There the two men meet and exchange words. The video stops before the shooting incident.

According to the police report, the two men argued with each other before pulling out weapons and firing on each other.

In the crossfire, an innocent bystander was struck by a stray bullet.

The suspect in the white t-shirt left on foot and the one in the black t-shirt left in his gold SUV, police stated.

The victim of the shooting was taken to a local hospital, where he remains in critical but stable condition.

It is unclear whether the two suspects knew each other before the incident. Neither suspect has been identified and the victim’s name has not been released.
