UPDATE- Officials from the San Antonio Police Department have released a surveillance image of the suspect accused of shooting and killing Timothy Collins on January 1 at a 7-Eleven located at 7930 Callaghan Road.
KENS5 reported that a man from Kerrville by the name of Kyle Shane, 31, stopped at the convenience store right before the shooting. Shane was in San Antonio to ring in the New Year with friends when he stopped at the store and asked the suspect for directions. Shane said the suspect was sitting inside of a parked Chevy Trailblazer.
“He was waiting for us to leave, you could just tell. Man, this is my 7-Eleven. I came here every day. I used to live in the apartment complex next door,” Shane told KENS5.

The image appears to show a man holding a gun and possibly wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt and a blue beanie.
