NORWALK - A former Connecticut inmate who was recently released from prison has been charged in a brutal triple shooting in rural North Carolina.

Antwan Anthony, 29, is accused of gunning down three employees while robbing a convenience store last week.

Police say Anthony and three others held up the store, took cash from the register and then shot the victims.

Prison records show Anthony had been in and out of the Connecticut prison system for the last 10 years.
