ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The St. Cloud Police Department has arrested a man in connection with a shooting outside a convenience store in July.

Willie Demont White Jr. is facing charges of 2nd degree assault with a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Investigators believe the 20-year-old is the man seen on video surveillance shooting a man in the leg outside 9th Avenue X-PRESS the night of July 26.

Police say the owner of the business recognized the suspect as a regular customer.

Surveillance video showed a red SUV leaving the area after the shooting, and video from two nights earlier shows the suspect in the store and driving the same vehicle.

Police say White Jr. is prohibited from possessing a gun because of previous crimes of violence.
