A Houston-area convenience store clerk has been charged with selling alcohol to a 17-year-old driver before a wreck that killed two of the teen’s classmates.
Harris County criminal court records show Gumaro Munoz Campos, 29, was arrested Sunday on the misdemeanor charge.
He lives in Humble, just north of Houston.
Prosecutors believe Jaggar Smith drank a bottle of wine before the July 25 accident that killed 16-year-olds Salma Gomez and Chloe Robison.
All three teens attended Atascocita High School.
Smith is charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
Chris Porter is a spokesman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
He said Monday that Campos is accused of selling alcohol to Smith before the wreck.
An attorney for Campos wasn’t listed in court document.
He also doesn’t have a publicly listed telephone number.
The TABC on Monday identified the store as Humble Handy Stop.
The store in 2012 was fined $2,400 and had its TABC license suspended for eight days for selling alcohol to a minor.
A man answering the telephone Monday at the store hung up when an Associated Press reporter sought comment.
