HIGH POINT, NC (WGHP) – A minor has been charged with first degree murder after a High Point man was fatally shot outside a store on East Green Drive, and police are looking for a second suspect, according to a High Point press release from the police.

At 12:32 a.m. Monday, officers responded to the Snack Corner convenience store parking lot at 1909 E. Green Dr. when they were notified of a shooting.

Officers who arrived found Rodney Rhoades, 46, of High Point, who had been shot once. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

During the homicide investigation, a 14-year-old youth was identified as a person of interest. The suspect was arrested on charges unrelated to Rhoades’ death in an incident in another jurisdiction.

High Point Police detectives responded and questioned the suspect.

They say probable cause has been developed to charge the minor with first degree murder and robbery with a firearm.

Officers are still looking for a second suspect who they believe was involved in the shooting.
