Two people have been arrested in the shooting of an unarmed security guard, including a Rite Aid employee.

Reports on Friday night stated 23-year-old Dionte Breedlove was charged with shooting the unarmed guard, identified as 22-year-old Garion Bogard.

According to reports, Bogard was talking with two Rite Aid employees at the store located on West End Avenue when Breedlove reportedly approached them and began firing around 4 a.m. on October 9. His motive was unknown.

Bogard was critically injured in the shooting.

An investigation led to Breedlove as the suspected shooter. Reports stated he also allegedly robbed the same Rite Aid on September 14.

Breedlove was taken into custody on Friday at his Ocoee Trail home. He has been charged with especially aggravated robbery and aggravated robbery for the shooting in October and aggravated robbery for the September 14 case. He was being held in jail in lieu of a $150,000 bond.

On Saturday, police said the shooting appeared to have been, in part, an inside job.

They confirmed the arrest of Rite Aid employee, 21-year-old Carlos Valcarcel-Arocho.

Authorities said an investigation showed he had a role in planning the robbery.

Valcarcel-Arocho reportedly admitted his involvement in an interview. He was being held in jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Reports stated Valcarcel-Arocho was working in the store when Breedlove allegedly shot Bogard. According to detectives, it’s believed Valcarcel-Arocho and Breedlove knew each other.
