HENRICO, VA—A 19-year-old Henrico County man was arraigned Wednesday on a first-degree murder charge in connection with a Sunday night attempted robbery of the Expressway Convenience Stores that left the 64-year-old store owner dead.

Jamon T. Burroughs, 19, of the 2100 block of Elkridge Lane, was arrested and charged with first degree murder and the use of a firearm in commission of a felony. He was denied bond Wednesday.

Burroughs was arrested at a home in the 3800 block of Howard Road near Laburnum Avenue just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

A SWAT team responded to the two-story home, as well as multiple Henrico County police officers Tuesday night. Police tell us they went to the home to issue a warrant.

Burroughs was charged in connection with the shooting death of a Henrico County convenience store clerk. Police say Burroughs was involved in an attempted robbery that left the clerk, 64-year-old Farook Bhimdi, dead.

More than 100 people gathered outside the store Tuesday night during a candlelight vigil. Friends, family and neighbors gathered to remember Bhimdi.

When officers arrived at the home, they took a child from inside the home and handed the child to family members.

Burroughs is being held without bond. He's due in court February 13.
