    The store video is on DC MPD Youtube page and there was no way he was getting away with this. I have no idea what he was thinking. His face is shown clearly on the camera inside the 7 eleven prior to the innocent and he really did not have to shoot the guy.

      Not to mention you can see what presumes to be him racking his gun before going off screen to shoot him. It also appears they caught the actual shooting on camera (and obviously cut it out for the public release). Sad.
