MONTICELLO, Miss. (AP) - One man is dead and another injured after an attempted robbery Thursday night at Duncan’s Corner Store in Monticello.

Lawrence County undersheriff Willie Wallace tells The Daily Leader (http://bit.ly/1rt25Qi ) that 53-year-old Patil Nilkanth Santoshrao died after being shot in the neck during an attempted armed robbery.

Wallace says a 16-year-old employee was transported to a hospital in Hattiesburg with a shoulder wound and was treated and released. He says Santoshrao’s son was also in the store but was not injured.

Sheriff Joel Thames says two men have been arrested but formal charges are pending. He did not release the names.

Authorities say the store had video cameras and investigators were able to use them to help to identify suspects.
