Pine Bluff police have arrested two Camden men in connection with the shooting death of Brandon McHan of White Hall during a robbery at the Wise Buck Pawn Shop in Pine Bluff on Nov.12.
At an early Tuesday morning press conference, Officer Richard Wegner said Rodney Henry, 21, and Daryl Strickland, 21, were taken into custody at two different locations at Camden and brought back to Pine Bluff where they were interviewed. They have now been booked into the adult detention center on probable cause of capital murder, aggravated robbery and attempted capital murder.
Wegner said agents of the Federal Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) New Orleans Field Division, police officers from Camden and deputies from the Ouachita County Sheriff’s Office assisted Pine Bluff detectives in making the arrests.
McHan, who was 34, was pronounced dead at Jefferson Regional Medical Center from gunshot wounds. An employee of the business, Jason Booth, was shot several times and taken to a Little Rock hospital, where he was treated.
In addition to the robbery at the pawn shop, Henry and Strickland were also identified as the suspects who robbed the Alon Convenience Store at 28th Avenue and Olive Street about an hour after the pawn shop robbery.
