A Texas teenager has confessed to fatally shooting a 7-Eleven clerk — and later copped to shooting an unrelated convenience store worker a week before, according to reports.

Baby-faced gunman Colten Moore, 18, of Garland, Texas, has been charged in the brutal murder of diligent Ethiopian immigrant Yosef Tulu with a long rifle on Tuesday, police said.

Moore — who burst into the store toting a scoped rifle and wearing a mask — also confessed to shooting a Homeboy’s gas station employee on Jan. 16. That victim survived, police said.
