Bunton was being held at the Franklin County Regional Jail on unrelated charges, according to police. 

According to a news release, Frankfort Police officers responded to a Marathon gas station located at 1009 Holmes Street, around 10:15 p.m. on a call about an attempted robbery and shooting.

Investigators say Johnson and Bush attempted to rob a store employee and a handyman at gun point as they were walking across a parking lot after closing the store.

According to authorities, one of the suspects shot the handyman during the robbery. Officials say that victim, 54-year-old Adan Juarez Vicente, died at the scene from a gunshot wound.
