Sketch Released in Deadly Armed Robbery, $10,000 Reward Offered for Arrest

Police described the suspects as two men seen leaving the store at the time of the crime

Lewisville police have released a sketch of a man they believe is responsible for the deadly shooting of a convenience store clerk.

Investigators said they are currently looking for two people in connection to the murder.

With the help of witnesses, detectives have been able to create a composite sketch of one of the suspects. He is described as a young adult, light-skinned, black male with straight teeth and an athletic build. Officers said his face is thin but appears fuller around the mouth. Police also said the man may have dreadlocks, but are unsure how long they may be.

The only details about the second person police are releasing at this time is that he is an older male.

Oak Farms Dairy is also offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and indictments of the suspects. The reward remains in place for six months from February 18, 2019. 

Officers were called to a reported shooting at the Valero gas station on the 300 block of East Corporate Drive at about 12:20 a.m. According to police, a customer interrupted a robbery and found Ashraf Lakhani lying on the floor with a gunshot wound.

Lakhani, a wife and newlywed, is the second person killed on the same block in the last two and a half months.
