Police have arrested two people in connection with a shooting at a Detroit gas station that left multiple people injured.

Perkins fell to the ground after two shots. A total of 10 shots can be heard ringing out as his smartphone records his death.

His friends and family rushed to his aide.

"Tony, Tony, you're okay," they offer, but it was already too late.

Video released by the King County Attorney's Office shows Jon Meis taking down alleged Seattle Pacific University gunman Aaron Ybarra on June 5, 2014.

Chicago police say the shooting was gang related, but Perkins' father says his son was "a good person" who was caught up in trouble only in his past. He was now more interested in working and taking care of his kids, he says.

The victim had just received a promotion at McDonald's.

Police hope someone can recognize the suspect in the black Mercedes. He opened fire on another man at a gas station in Dickinson.

Sadly, his family lost Perkins' brother a few years ago in a shooting.

The shooter is not in custody, police say, but investigators are looking at the video in hopes of finding the man's killer or killers.
