WARRENTON, Va. — Police say that a 76-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of CVS pharmacy manager whose body was found near a dumpster outside the store in a Virginia town.

Local news outlets report that according to Warrenton police, Bernard Clark Duse Jr. was arrested on Wednesday for the death of 64-year-old Rex Mack Olsen.

WUSA-TV reports Olsen was Duse’s supervisor and that authorities say he faces a gun charge and first degree murder.

It is unclear if Duse has an attorney.

The Washington Post reports the killing is the first of 2017 in Warrenton, which had none last year and has a population of roughly 9,600.
