Master Deputy Laura Campbell said that two men walked into the shop, and at least one of them pointed a gun at a worker and demanded money. She said the worker then pulled his own gun and shot the armed man, killing him.
The second man, identified as 21-year-old Ernest Dennis Jr., of Greenville, was arrested at the scene, Campbell said. Dennis was charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime, criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.
The identity of the man killed during the holdup was not immediately released.
