— Goldsboro police have arrested a third man in the shooting of a store owner during a robbery in August.

Police arrested Joshua Earl Devon Davis, 21, of 610 S. Center St., Mount Olive, on Sunday after getting information about where they could find him, they said.

Davis was charged with attempted first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The charges stem from the robbery and shooting of Ribhi Mohammed Kandeel, the owner of Brookside Mart, 2000 S. Slocumb St.

He was shot while working in his store the night of Aug. 18.

Kandeel was still recovering from his gunshot wound as of Monday.

Police put Davis in the Wayne County Jail under a $1 million secured bond pending his first appearance on Monday.

His arrest was the third in the case. Rashard Vondarius Oliver and Quentin Lamont Kenon were also in the Wayne County Jail under $1 million secured bonds.
