Mural for Executed Gang Member Painted on Store

22:32 |

A mural on the wall of a westside convenience store is causing some controversy.

The painting which went up with the permission of the store owner reads "In Loving Memory of Marty Robles."

Martin Robles was executed by the State of Texas on Wednesday night for the murders of two rival gang members in 2002.

We spoke with a couple who say they are responsible for the mural and had permission from the store to paint it.

They didn't want to go on camera, but defended the mural saying they just wanted to honor the memory of their friend.

They also acknowledged that Robles was responsible for the murders and say he paid the price for it.
