FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — An 18-year-old Fayetteville man is charged with murder in the death of a 19-year-old man who was shot during a drug deal gone wrong, police said Wednesday.

Joshua Maultsby died Sunday afternoon after a friend took him to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Fayetteville police said Maultsby and an acquaintance had arranged to meet for a drug deal, but it appeared Maultsby was robbed and shot behind Belk's at Tallywood Shopping around 12:30 p.m.

Investigators on Tuesday arrested Jamal Shaquille Jarvis at his home in the 5100 block of Buckskin Drive. He is charged with first-degree murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Jarvis was held at the Cumberland County Detention Center. Bond information was unavailable.
