Bowling Green police have arrested a man and charged him with murder and robbery in a fatal holdup at a Domino's Pizza franchise early Monday morning. Twenty-year-old John Paul Shobe is in custody.

Police say officers were called to the Domino's on Stonehenge Avenue just after the store closed at midnight Monday.

They found 51-year-old Harold Dean Johnson of Bowling Green in a side parking lot dead of an apparent gunshot wound. A news release said soon after that, police found Shobe while searching the area and arrested him on charges of giving a false name and fleeing and evading.

Police said after searching Shobe's apartment, he was charged with Johnson's death and first degree robbery.

The news release from BGPD said Johnson was employed by Domino's at a separate location. He reportedly went to the Stonehenge Avenue store to help his girlfriend close up for the night.
