GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Investigators are searching for a man that fatally shot a security guard who was working at a Greensboro grocery store.

Police said in a news release that 51-year-old Anthony C. Smith, of Winston-Salem, was working inside a Food Lion store Saturday night when an armed man approached him, shot him once in the head and fled with the guard's weapon.

Witnesses told investigators that the man didn't try to rob the store and there did not seem to be a disturbance prior to the shooting.

Police are looking for a man captured in surveillance photos. He is described as being in his early 30s and between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall.

Jim Stevens, the CEO of Guard-One Protective Services, the company Smith worked for, is offering a $10,000 reward.

According to police, there was no robbery attempt or any other kind of disturbance during the shooting.
