HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Crime Stoppers has joined Houston authorities in the search for three people involved in the murder of an 18-year-old last month at a southwest Houston gas station.

Curtis "Tre" Churchman III was sitting in his vehicle at the business in the 9700 block of Stella Link on June 8 when a white Dodge pickup pulled up.
