Authorities are searching for a Georgia parolee in the shooting death of a convenience store clerk in Oxford, Alabama.
One suspect in the robbery and slaying of 27-year-old Sean Adam Cook is in custody. Officers arrested 21-year-old James Merrill Potts of Weaver on Saturday and charged him with capital murder.
But a search continues for 21-year-old Jesse Earl Scheuing of Waycross, Ga.
Georgia prison records show Scheuing was paroled on Aug. 6 from Valdosta State Prison. He had been serving sentences for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and other charges related to automobile theft.
Police believe Potts remained in a car outside the Pak-A-Sak in Oxford while Scheuing went into the store. Cook was found dead by a customer who called police at 12:48 a.m. Friday.
