Three suspects arrested in triple killing-robbery at rural store in North Carolina

Farmville. Can't believe it.
Think I'm going to start having an extra weapon closer at hand

Three suspects were arrested in connection with the robbery and triple killing in the rural community of Farmville, N.C., the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

The crime took place Sunday night at a convenience store on a sparsely populated road as three employees — the teen son of the owner and his two cousins — were preparing to close for the night. A customer discovered the shooting victims shortly after the perpetrators left, around 10 p.m.

The bloody crime shook this normally quiet community. Farmville has a population of about 4,500 and is more than an hour's drive east of Raleigh. County and town law enforcers had been on a 24/7 manhunt before the arrests.

Sheriff Neil Elks announced the arrests of the two men and an unnamed juvenile Wednesday morning: Antwan Andre Anthony, 29, of Bethel; Xavier Montel Shamble, 19, of Farmville; and a Farmville juvenile were brought in late Tuesday night for questioning.

Each was charged with three counts of murder on Wednesday morning, and each was charged with other charges, including first-degree kidnapping, robbery and possession of firearm by a felon.
