LUMBERTON, N.C. (AP) - A Red Springs teen has been charged with shooting a Lumberton man and dumping his body in a bean field.

According to a release from the Roberson County Sheriff’s Office, the 17-year-old male was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Rogers Oneal Robinson. He’s also charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The release says Robinson was fatally shot and his body was found in the field between Pembroke and Lumberton after the suspect led investigators to the site.

The shooting was the result of an argument. The teenager left the scene in Robinson’s vehicle.

Deputies later conducted a traffic stop on the suspect after receiving a tip that he was driving the stolen vehicle.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the teenager has an attorney.
