FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Investigators say a 27-year-old Rockingham man has been shot to death as he tried to run away from three men who kidnapped him at a Fayetteville gas station.

Police said two of the suspects got into Errol Williams’ car at the gas station around 4:45 a.m. Sunday and forced him to drive away while the third man followed in a different vehicle.

Authorities say Williams tried to run away at some point and was shot and killed.

Police say the men then returned to the gas station Sunday afternoon and stole surveillance equipment at gunpoint. But investigators had already released footage of the men to the media. They are trying to identify the suspects.

Police didn’t give a motive for the crime.
