Store owner shot three times by masked robber

Posted: Updated:

    Tuscaloosa Homicide investigators are still looking for the person who shot the owner of a Hispanic store in the community of Holt.

    32 year old Jeremias Tecpile's store is located next to the Dollar General store on Crescent Ridge Road just before Alabama Avenue.

   Tecpile shares a mobile home next to his store with friends, including Margarita Hernandez.  She says Tecpile had just walked over to drink coffee with her male friend  "While he was drinking coffee with him, he saw someone walk by.  He thought it was a customer and he went out and saw the man running with the machine you put the money in.  He told him to stop but he didn't and I guess he shot," she said.

   Captain Loyd Baker says, " The victim fired at the suspect and missed.  The suspect fired back several times hitting the victim multiple times."

   Tecpile was shot three times...once in the side, back and leg according the Hernandez.  She says doctors had to perform surgery on Tecpile's stomach.  He is in stable but serious condition at DCH hospital.

   As of Tuesday evening, detectives did not have a suspect.
