Sometime after 7:00 p.m., James Johnson was buying lottery tickets inside a local convenience store. Two men wearing hoodies, bandanas and dark clothing entered the store and demanded money. When they didn't immediately get the money they were seeking, they started shooting.

A store clerk, Rodney Maynard, was shot in the shoulder. He was taken to a local hospital with non life threatening wounds.

James Johnson, an innocent customer, was shot in the face and killed outright. He died at the scene.

Rodney Maynard stated that James Johnson had no chance at all and that he was shot while he had his hands in his pockets.

Three men may have been involved in this crime - two who entered the store and a third man who waited outside as a lookout. They are all described as black males in their
Jesus, pray for James and for
those who have lost him.

If you have any information about this crime, you are urged to Call the Red Springs police at 910-843-3454.

We put this question to the thieves who killed James Johnson: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

James is described as a regular customer of the store and a friend to the staff who work there.

James' loved ones are devastated over his senseless and tragic death. He is described as a quiet man and a family man who was very close to this grandchildren.

Pray for justice for James Johnson.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father.
