Photo Released Of Austin Aggravated Robbery Suspect

Updated: Tuesday, April 30 2013, 06:34 PM CDT

Austin police are searching for an aggravated robbery suspect that shot a man with a shotgun in Central Austin early Monday morning.

The shooting happened at around 12:10 a.m. at the Texaco gas station located at 5301 North Lamar Blvd., just north of 51st Street.

Police say the gas station employee was sitting in his vehicle after closing the store for the night when he was approached by a white male and shot with a shotgun. The victim is in critical but stable condition. It is unclear if the suspect attempted to take any property or said anything, according to police.

Investigators say the same suspect robbed another man on Sunday night at around 11:28 p.m. at the Camden Laurel Ridge Apartments located at 13005 Heinemann Drive in Northwest Austin at the intersection of Parmer Lane and McNeil Drive.

Police say the victim was walking toward the HEB on West Parmer Lane next to his apartment complex when the suspect got out of a gold-colored Buick Rendezvous SUV, pointed a shot gun at him and demanded his personal property. The victim complied and threw down his wallet, and the suspect left the scene without harming the victim. He later used the victim's credit card at another store.

The suspect (pictured left) is described as a white male, approximately 18 years old with a slim build, approximately 5' 9" with brownish red hair. At both scenes, he was wearing a blue or black t-shirt and khaki shorts.

Detectives would also like to speak to a person of interest, pictured center.

This case remains under investigation by APD Robbery detectives.  Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Robbery tip line at 512-974-5092.
