WINDSOR, Va. (AP) — A man was fatally shot during a fight at a Virginia warehouse and authorities say they’re searching for the suspect, the victim’s coworker.

Isle of Wight Sheriff’s deputies and Windsor Police officers responded to a report of a shooting Thursday at Safco Products and found a man who had been shot.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Capt. Tommy Potter says the man, identified as Rakim Breedin of Como, North Carolina, died on the way to a hospital. He says the shooting happened after Breedin fought with a coworker, who then left to get a gun.

He says when they fought a second time, the coworker shot Breedin. Officials say they’re charging Preston Thomas with second-degree murder.
