Two suspects were captured on camera in a nearby convenience store later that night. Police released the footage on Tuesday.

A second suspect is described as a black male in his late teens to early 20s, roughly 5 feet and 6 inches tall with a slim build and short, cropped hair. He can be seen wearing all-black clothing, including a black hooded sweatshirt with a white pattern on the front.
