Boston police have released surveillance video of the alleged shooter in a brazen midday robbery at a Roxbury cellphone store in July that left a 19-year-old employee dead.
The video, which was released on the department’s website, appears to show a young male, wearing a baseball cap and a backpack, walking past storefront windows near the attack scene.
A police spokeswoman declined to say exactly from where the surveillance video was shot.
Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the individual, who allegedly robbed the store in the 1000 block of Tremont Street, near Northeastern University, shortly after 1 p.m. on July 31.
During the robbery, Joseph Morante, 19, of Revere, a store employee, was shot. He was later pronounced dead at Boston Medical Center.
