A 46-year-old man was shot and killed during an armed robbery in North Carolina and now police say one suspect, a 14-year-old boy, has been arrested.
Detectives are also searching for a second suspect.
Around 12:30 a.m. on Feb. 7, officers responded to a convenience store parking lot in High Point, North Carolina, regarding a report of an assault with a deadly weapon, the High Point Police Department said.
At the scene, police said they found a man suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Officials said lifesaving measures were performed on the victim, later identified as 46-year-old Rodney Rhoades, but he was pronounced dead at the store.
An investigation began and police determined Rhoades was killed during an armed robbery while a companion of his was using the outside ATM at the convenience store. The companion was unharmed, authorities said.
