INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — U.S. Marshals arrested 51-year-old Douglas Cobbs in Las Vegas Friday afternoon for the shooting death of Dollar General employee Briane Eure.

Cobbs was wanted for Eure's killing during an attempted robbery in Indianapolis Sunday afternoon, May 27. Eure was the assistant manager at the store.

Metro Police homicide detectives released video of the suspect caught on camera during the deadly shooting. The new security cameras were just installed last week.

Brian's wife says the suspect is a cold-blooded killer.

“He killed a man in cold blood. He shot him in the back of his head with no hesitation and just left him there," Jolene Thomas-Eure said.

“He would do anything for you," said Vendor Kelly Howell, “He has some kids and grandkids. I just found out about this and it's kind of harsh."

The family has also started a GoFundMe page to help Brian's family.

Cobbs is due in court in Las Vegas Tuesday morning.
