SEATTLE (AP) — Police in Washington state arrested two people in the fatal shooting of a convenience store clerk in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds.

Two people who were not identified by authorities were arrested at 4 a.m. Sunday by the Edmonds Police Department and a SWAT team, KOMO-TV reported.

The body of 64-year-old Nagrendiram Kandasamy was found Feb. 21 by a customer at a 7-Eleven store in Edmonds, 17 miles (27 kilometers) north of Seattle.

A car was seized as possible evidence in the shooting, authorities said.

Both of those arrested were booked into the Snohomish County Jail in Everett, Edmonds Police Department spokesman Josh McClure said.

They were already wanted on a state Department of Corrections warrant, McClure said.
