Fayetteville Police have arrested one man and are looking for another one in connection with a violent store robbery and shooting that happened last month.

On the evening of Nov. 26, two armed suspects wearing masks went into the Quick Stop Tobacco Mart convenience store in the 500 block of Grove Street and demanded cash, while two other men waited outside in a car.

During the robbery, two store clerks, 44-year-old Najib Bouzerda and 41-year-old Mohamed Ould were shot. Both are still recovering at the hospital.

On Thursday, authorities arrested Tyrone Dobbins in connection with the incident.

He is charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, manufacturing and possession of marijuana.

He is currently at the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $1,160,000 secured bond.

Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a second suspect, Martino Anthony Jones, in connection with the shooting. They said Jones should be considered armed and dangerous.

The investigation into the double shooting is still ongoing. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jones is asked to call 911.
