Three Tarboro men are under arrest in connection with a deadly robbery last night in Edgecombe County.
Store clerk Ahmad Nimer was shot at the Wings N Things Store on Highway 33. He later died at a local hospital.
Sheriff deputies have charged 19 year old William Allen with Nimer's murder, while 16 year old Kendrick Everette is charged with two counts of breaking and entering and larceny. Also charged is 18 year old Donyell Allen with possession of a stolen firearm.
Authorities say the murder happened as the store was being robbed and that Nimer was apparently shot as he tried to chase the robbers off. A total of four shots were fired, two hitting the victim and at least one other striking a suspect.
Deputies say it's not the first time some of the men had targeted the store. They claim William Allen and Everette also broke into the business on October 24th.
A fourth suspect is still being sought and deputies say they expect additional charges in this case.
