ROBESON COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Robeson County authorities are searching for two people in connection with an early morning murder.

Officials with the Lumberton Police Department say 46-year-old Charles Roier was shot and killed in the parking lot of Brandon's Quick Check in Lumberton, around 2:30 Tuesday morning.

According to investigators, Rozier was at an ATM at the Quick Check.  After returning to his pickup truck, authorities believe two men attempted to rob Rozier.

The robbery turned murder when one of the suspects shot Rozier in the chest. A friend of Rozier's found him dead in his pickup truck in front of the ATM and flagged down a state trooper.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Lumberton Police Department, (910) 671-3845.
