Surveillance video shows 16-year-old Fred Couch being shot to death outside a convenience store on the city's South Side on Wednesday night. Police, who are examining the video, say no arrests had been made as of Friday evening.

Couch was a student at Christian Fenger Academy High School. In September, the beating death of Derrion Albert, an honor student at Fenger, was captured by a cell phone video camera. That video attracted national attention.

Couch's father was shot to death in 1993.
