A clerk working at the time of the shooting shared surveillance video of the incident.

The video shows a white Lexus pull up on the side of the gas pump next to a silver sedan. Two suspects get out and a man is seen beginning to run away from them.

The video shows a suspect point a gun at the man running away as he trails behind before shots were fired.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, police said, then fell to the ground as he was shot in the chest.

The suspect robbed the men of their cash and sped off, police said.

The victim's friends helped him into the car to take him to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

No one else was injured inside the gas station and the clerk, who witnessed the shooting, said the doors were locked at the time.

Investigators found at least three shell casings on the ground near where the victim was shot.

Meanwhile, police said no one in custody as Area One detectives are investigating.
