— Rocky Mount police arrested a man Tuesday morning who is wanted in a break-in at a Wendell convenience store.

Jonathan Edward Carr, 36, is the third man connected to the break-in early Monday at the Swift Mart on 1720 Marshburn Road.

Wake County sheriff's deputies spotted two of the three suspects walking along N.C. Highway 97 about four hours after the break-in. The men fled into a wooded area off of Green Pace Road and were located about an hour later.

One suspect, Cornelius Pierre Harrison, 25, of Rocky Mount, fought with a deputy and was shot. He later died of his injuries.

A second man, Byron Lendell Williams, 24, of 115 Aqua Court in Rocky Mount, was arrested and charged with breaking and entering, larceny and resisting arrest, according to court documents. He was being held under a $15,000 bond at the Wake County jail Tuesday.

Deputy Brad Manville injured his hand in the altercation with Harrison. He was placed on administrative leave while the State Bureau of Investigation reviews Harrison's shooting, standard procedure when an officer fires his weapon.

Sheriff Donnie Harrison said Manville was going to an orthopedist to determine if he needed surgery.

The third suspect, Carr, was found at his mother's house, at 704 Cascade Ave. in Rocky Mount,  Tuesday morning.

Williams and Carr are each accused of taking $60 in cash and $200 worth of cigarettes from Swift Mart, according to arrest warrants.

    "Wow! Dying for $260! Well, at least that's one off the streets that we don't have to worry about."----

    He didn't just die for $260.00, simpleton. It's called the big picture. Try it out sometime.

    I hope the courts will give them all 15 years in prison, and maybe these young people will stop breaking and entering. They need to learn a hard lesson. Send them to prison for a while.

    The two that are in jail need to be charged with murder for the death of their buddy!! He was killed in the commission of a felony and resulted in a death, once they conspired they all are a link in the chain.
