Durham police are trying to identify this man in connection with a fatal robbery April 27 at the Fast Food Mart at 2106 Broad St.

A 23-year-old Durham man was identified Thursday as a suspect in the holdup of a convenience store on Broad Street last week that left one worker dead and another wounded.

Police said they have charged Timothy Leon Moore, who lives on Granby Street, with murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, felony conspiracy and robbery with a dangerous weapon. They were trying to find him.

Investigators said they are also looking for a second man they have not yet been able to identify from a surveillance photo and for a silver Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with a black toolbox in the bed.

Nafez Jalal, 57, was working behind the counter at the Fast Food Mart at 2106 Broad St. on the night of April 27 when he was shot in the chest during the robbery. He was dead when police arrived. The second employee, 48-year-old Hassan Joalale of Durham, was shot in the leg.

Jalal, a native of Jordan, had been living in the Triangle for years and is the father of five grown daughters and a 19-year-old son who attends Durham Tech.

Police asked anyone with information they think might help them find Moore or the truck or help them identify the second man to call Investigator J.P. Mitchell at 919-560-4440, ext. 29335, or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
