Two people have been shot to death in an apparent robbery attempt at an Orange County store, and authorities are searching for a suspect.
Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a robbery around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at the Week in Treasures store in Cedar Grove in northern Orange County. When they arrived, they found two victims with gunshot wounds.
Major Charles Blackwood said the owner of the store died at the scene, and the second victim was transported to Duke Medical Center, where he later died.
Blackwood said the State Bureau of Investigation has been asked to help in the investigation into the shooting.
