TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - UPDATE: The Bell County Sheriff's Office says two deputies went to Beaumont on Wednesday to bring Thomas Corey Williams back to Bell County. Williams is charged with the murder of Mazhar "Johnny" Khan at Pool's Grocery on April 2.

UPDATE: A 20-year-old has been arrested for the April 2nd murder of
Mazhar "Johnny" Khan at a Temple convenience store. Corey Thomas Williams, 20, was identified by surveillance video. He was located in Beaumont and is in custody in Harris County.

One person was killed and another was transported to an area hospital after a shooting late Wednesday night at a Temple business.

Temple police responded to a report of shots fired at Pool's Grocery, located in the 1700 block of S. 1st St., just after 11:30 p.m. Officers arrived on the scene and found two men who had been shot and another man who was unharmed in the store.

One the victims was transported to Scott & White Hospital with life threatening injuries to the shoulder, and the second victim was pronounced dead at the scene.  Family members tell us Mazhar "Johnny" Khan owned the convenience store.

Police say the preliminary investigation shows that man entered the store and took out a handgun. He the shot the two men and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Khan leaves behind six children and his family can't believe how senseless this crime is.  His brother Azhar says, "It's not worth it for $20 because the cast registers don't have much money.  So if you need money, just ask.  There's no need to kill people because then you're destroying several lives and families."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.
