(WMC-TV) – Two men are under arrest in connection with the gas station murder that happened Monday night.

Marcus Ledrey Thomas, 19, and Derrick Dewayne Walton, 18, both of Sardis, Mississippi, are charged with capital murder.

Tarik Abudieh was shot and pronounced dead on the scene. Another man was also shot but was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday.

A friend of Abudieh tells Action News 5 he was the father of two girls, who live in Jordan, where the rest of his family lives. He was going to take the test to become an American citizen Thursday.

Surveillance photos were released Wednesday in hopes that the public could help police identify the shooters.

Both Thomas and Walton are being held without bond.
