A relative tells WWAY police arrested George around 8:30 a.m., but the relative says George had nothing to do with the crime.

George is also charged with attempted murder and several counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, according to jail records. Last week police arrested Zeer Cannady, 20, and charged him with the same crimes.

Police are still looking for a third suspect, but Rawley says they do not yet have a name to release.

The NC Department of Corrections website says George has a criminal record that includes ten convictions since the start of 2012 for crimes including communicating threats, assault on a female, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. He received probation for all the offenses, including currently being on two years probation for three convictions in February and one year of probation for convictions in January.
