GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man shot to death in the parking lot of a North Carolina mall was the victim of a robbery.

Greensboro Police said in a news release that 33-year-old Westley Tugman of Lenoir was shot around 1:30 p.m. Saturday outside J.C. Penney at Four Seasons Town Centre and died a short time later at the hospital. The mall remained open.

Detectives have spoken to witnesses and are reviewing surveillance camera footage, but have not identified a suspect.

Police are asking anyone who might have seen the confrontation but left before officers arrived to call detectives.
