TYLER – The Smith County grand Jury has indicted one of three suspects involved in the robbery of a Tyler gas station clerk with his murder. Police say Dameon Mosley, 35, of Tyler was one of three persons who robbed the Conoco gas station on North Northeast Loop 323 in late January. During the robbery a store employee, Billy Stacks, 62, was shot. He later died at a Tyler Hospital. Authorities say Mosely was the masked man who jumped over the counter. Stacks was shot twice as he struggled with the robber. Two other suspects in the case are charged with aggravated robbery.

After the robbery, the masked man ran from the gas station and later got into a vehicle which authorities pursued. During the chase, one suspect got out of the vehicle and ran into a wooded area around State Highway 155 and Interstate Highway 20. The driver of the vehicle continued down Highway 155. Smith County Deputies set up a perimeter around the wooded area. DPS helicopters and K-9 units were also called to the scene. The vehicle was later discovered on Farm Road 2015 at County Road 334. Later arrested in the case were Lamarcus Hannah, 32, and Kedarius Hayes Oliver, 23, both of Tyler.
