EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma authorities say they are trying to determine if the suspect in a fatal bank robbery in Eufaula is the same assailant in a convenience store robbery in Texas.

Police in Irving, Texas, issued a news release and surveillance footage Friday depicting a man matching the description of Cedric Lamont Norris walking into a convenience store Jan. 19 around midnight and beating the store clerk before stealing his vehicle.

The release says the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation contacted Irving police regarding the vehicle, which may have been the same car Oklahoma authorities chased after the robbery at the Bank of Eufaula. The bank’s president and CEO was fatally shot in the robbery.

Authorities say Norris died during a shootout with police following the robbery Thursday at the Bank of Eufaula.
