Raleigh County authorities say a man shot and killed an elderly man before stealing his car near Arnett.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Mickey Roger Daniel Jr., 29, of Edwight, early Sunday and charged him in connection with the shooting death of Johnny Nile Condia, 77, of Dameron, according to a statement by the sheriff's department.
It happened Friday evening on Saxon Bolt Road in Arnett. Condia was found lying in the road with a gunshot wound. He told deputies his car was taken after he was shot, according to the release.
Condia was taken to Raleigh General Hospital where he died of his injuries.
Detectives found Condia's car and searched it for clues. Their investigation eventually led to Daniel, who now is being held at Southern Regional Jail without bond.
Detectives still are investigating.
