A suspected illegal immigrant has been charged in the murder of a convenience store clerk during an armed robbery in Houston, authorities say.

Jose Bonilla-Ortiz, 18, was arrested on Saturday morning at an apartment about two miles north of the Metro Food Mart where he is accused of gunning down Bangladeshi immigrant Faruk Bhuiya, 48.

Surveillance footage shows two armed robbers wearing hoodies waking into the store in northwest Houston around 9pm on November 10.

They briefly look around the shop before passing out of the frame, at which point they allegedly shot and killed Bhuiya.

Houston police Detective Jason Fay said tipsters helped identify Bonilla-Ortiz in the video, while the other man has not been identified or arrested.

Bonilla-Ortiz’s bond is set at $250,000 and he is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

The 18-year-old has no prior criminal history in Harris County, but jail records show Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on Bonilla-Ortiz because he is not believed to be a US citizen.

He was deported from the country in 2016, prosecutors say. It was not immediately clear where he is originally from.
