Greenville police are searching for a man who committed armed robbery at a local business and shot and killed one man outside the same business.
At 9:48 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, officers with the Greenville Police Department responded to an armed robbery call at Alite Choice, 2932 Highway 82 West.
Officers found 24-year-old Robbie Fletcher in a Pontiac Grand Prix parked in front of the store, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died on scene.
“Emergency medical personnel responded along with the coroner and he was pronounced deceased on scene,” Merchant said.
