      2 killed, 1 injured in NC robbery attempt

      LUMBERTON, N.C. (AP) - Police are investigating a shooting during a robbery attempt that left two people dead and one critically injured in North Carolina.

      The Fayetteville Observer reported Saturday that the Robeson County sheriff identified the dead as 19-year-old Jason Kendall Chavis of Lumberton and 21-year-old Derrick Scott Shea of Red Springs.

      The sheriff said in a news release that 18-year-old Kiara Jones of St. Pauls was in critical condition at Duke University Medical Center in Durham. Hospital staff would not release patient information Saturday.

      The three and a fourth person who was not injured in the shooting met some other people in a restaurant parking lot. Those people tried to rob the foursome and fired at them when they tried to get away.
