FORT WORTH - A Fort Worth teen has been indicted for capital murder in the shooting of a Como convenience store clerk as he was trying to leave for the night.
Nicholas Dewayne King, 19, was indicted by a Tarrant County grand jury earlier this month in the shooting of clerk Yasir Elsadig, 38, on Nov. 2, 2011. Two juveniles have also been charged in the shooting.
Elsadig, a native of Sudan who had been in the U.S. about 12 years at the time, died the next day.
According to a sworn statement by police, the three teens plotted to rob the store clerk as he closed for the night at Larry's Grocery and Market at 5536 Bonnell St.
Elsadig was found lying on the street with a gunshot wound to the leg and pelvis and an assault rifle nearby when police arrived on the scene.
He told police he was "jacked" by two masked men as he left the store, and scuffled with one of the men over the weapon. He said he was shot as he grabbed the rifle.
The third youth apparently stayed behind and served as a "lookout" in a vacant building across the street from the grocery, according to the police statement.
A witness said King admitted being the gunman, according to police. King remains in jail with a $500,000 bond.
