FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Fayetteville police were looking Saturday night for two suspects in the shooting death of a pawn shop clerk earlier Saturday.

Authorities said Cedric Theodis Hobbs Jr. and Angelic Alex Mattock entered the Cumberland Pawn Shop, 713 Grove St., around 5:15 p.m. and shot the 19-year-old clerk. His name was not released.

They fled in the clerk’s vehicle, a silver Saturn Ion with North Carolina license plate YWC-6552. The car has fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror and scratches on the front passenger side.

Police said Mattock has a 9-month-old child.

The pair is also wanted for questioning in a suspicious death that happened in McDuffie County, Ga., earlier Saturday, Fayetteville police said.

Hobbs, 29, has connections to Georgia, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Winston-Salem, and could be traveling on surrounding interstates.

Police said Hobbs has a history of armed robberies and assaults on law enforcement officials and that both suspects should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the suspects should call their local law enforcement office or Fayetteville police at 910-433-1830 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS.
