A man is being hunted in a parking lot in western Pennsylvania, and police are searching for a suspect.
The police department in nearby Canton said Friday that it had found the body in a white Nissan pickup in the parking lot of a Walmart in Canton.
It was found about 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
The incident began after a person called police on Saturday, Canton Police Chief Anthony C. Fonseca said in a Facebook post.
The suspect, identified as Michael W. Thompson, was taken into custody Saturday night in Cantons village of Westmoreland.
He was arrested in Cantonal Township and charged with attempted murder, police said.
The manhunt began Saturday afternoon, when the department received a tip that Thompson was driving a white pickup that matched the description of the suspect in the Walmart robbery.
The suspect had been seen on the news wearing a white t-shirt with a gun, Cantons police spokesman Joe Nisbett said.
Investigators soon found a pickup truck in the lot that matched Thompson’s description.
Thompson, 21, was arrested Saturday night and charged in Cantonian Township with attempted robbery, a felony, and possession of a firearm in connection with the Walmart incident, police added.
He was being held without bail in Cantona, about 45 miles (65 kilometers) south of Pittsburgh.
He had a previous felony conviction in Cantones Ohio and a conviction for an unrelated domestic assault, Cantonal Police Chief Joseph B. Ponce Jr. said in an email to The Associated Press.
A Walmart spokesman declined to comment.
The Cantons Walmart is the city’s largest, with more than 3,000 employees and more than 700 stores.
It has a reputation for being the place to be if you want to avoid being mugged, Ponce said.
