Police have charged a 16-year-old and 23-year-old with murder and armed robbery in a fatal jewelry story robbery in Villa Rica on Wednesday.

Villa Rica Police Captain Keith Shaddix would not release the teen's name but said he is being charged as an adult.

A second suspect Raphael Rucker, 23, was arrested near Stone Mountain. He was charged with murder and armed robbery and is currently in the Carroll Co. Jail.

Police are still searching for three people involved in the robbery at The Mobley Company Jewelers Inc.

The store's owner, Mitch Mobley, was shot and killed when the men ran in and smashed display cases with hammers.

Investigators are trying to determine if this is the same crew that robbed a jewelry store at Atlanta's Lennox Mall.

CBS Atlanta News will have more information as it becomes available.
