3 arrested, charged with murder in NC store holdup


GREENVILLE, NC (AP) -- The Pitt County sheriff's office has arrested three people who are charged with murdering a convenience store owner's son and two of his relatives during a holdup.

Sheriff Neil Elks says the arrests were made Wednesday, prompted in part by Crimestoppers hotline tips.

Antwan Andre Anthony and Xavier Montel Shamble face three charges of murder and kidnapping. The two 19-year-olds are being held at the Pitt County jail.

A third suspect's name was not released because he's a juvenile.

Investigators say the trio shot 16-year-old Mokbel Mohamed Almujanhi at the Hustle Mart in Farmville on Sunday night. The three are also charged with shooting the owner's brother, 26-year-old Nabil Nasser Saeed Al'mogannahi, and cousin, 24-year-old Gaber Alawi.

It wasn't immediately clear Wednesday if the suspects have lawyers.
