Valdosta - Police are looking for a second suspect in a year and a half old murder and armed robbery case.

On the afternoon on October 15th, 2003, two men walked into the A and B Food Store on East Hill Avenue and shot the clerks. Fifty-six year old Natavarkal Patel was killed, his 29-year-old son Bhratomar wounded.

Last week, police got a tip and arrested the shooter, 17-year-old Tobie Bradley of Valdosta. They're still looking for a second suspect, 26-year-old Roger Bernard Ponder.

"We are obtaining an arrest warrant on him today for party to the crime of murder and there's also an open warrant on Mr. Ponder for violation of probation," said Captain Brian Childress.

Several business owners in Valdosta have offered a reward of up to 20,000 dollars for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderers.
