A male (shooter) agreed to meet two unknown male suspects in the parking lot of a grocery store at the above address to conduct a business transaction for used auto parts. When the male exited his vehicle, both suspects approached him and, at gunpoint, demanded his money and property. The male, who is a concealed handgun license owner, pulled out his weapon and fired at both suspects. One died at the scene while the other fled the scene on foot. It is believed the suspect fled to a nearby field and was picked up by an unknown vehicle. Investigators recovered a weapon in the field.
