Two men have been charged in connection with a murder that occurred at a Memphis pawn-shop during a robbery, the Memphis Police Department said in a statement Friday.

Charles Griffin, 30, has been charged in first-degree murder in perpetration of a robbery and Christopher Woodland, 23, has been charged in accessory after the fact to wit first-degree murder, police said.

Memphis police were called about 11:45 a.m. Wednesday to the Lamar Avenue Pawn and Jewelry at 2399 Lamar Ave., where they had found the store's owner, Virak Hean, 56, had been shot. Hean was pronounced dead at the scene.

The department said a video showed a black man entering the store, shooting Hean during the robbery and then fleeing the scene in a red Pontiac vehicle. Police said the vehicle was carrying a second person.
