BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Authorities in Alabama say a teen has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a store clerk.

AL.com reports (http://s.al.com/efWyWUc ) Birmingham police said on Tuesday 18-year-old Chandler Bryant is charged with capital murder and being held without bond at the Jefferson County Jail. He’s charged in the June 3 slaying of 29-year-old Mike Ngangi, also known as Mike Mulwa , who was shot while working at a Citgo service station.

Police Sgt. Bryan Shelton says a robbery alarm dispatched officers about 11:30 p.m. Ngangi was found with one gunshot wound and taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery and died hours later.

Ngangi’s cousin Erik Sukulu says he’s survived by a wife and three children.

It’s unclear if Bryant has an attorney.
