CAMDEN, Ark. (AP) - Police in Camden have arrested a teenager in the shooting death of a store manager.

Police Chief Boyd Woody says 19-year-old Austin Hill of Camden was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Sunday on charges of capital murder and aggravated robbery.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1v979tU ) that Hill is accused of killing 63-year-old Richard Anders, the manager of Mac’s Fresh Market, in the store’s parking lot on Friday.

Police say Anders was walking to his vehicle with another employee when the gunman approached him and shot him once in the chest. The gunman took a bag from Anders that held the store’s deposits.

Anders was transported to the Ouachita County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Woody says the investigation is ongoing.
