CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Three more people are facing charges in last week's shooting death of a southeastern Pennsylvania drugstore manager.

The latest arrests in South Philadelphia come days after authorities previously charged a Philadelphia man and woman in the slaying of 40-year-old Rite Aid manager Jason McClay of Broomall.

Police said Wednesday they arrested 23-year-old Tariq Mahmud, a loss prevention officer at the Chester store, along with 23-year-old neighbors Christopher Parks and 19-year-old Ashaniere White.

Authorities said 24-year-old David Wiggins and 23-year-old Rita Pultro were previously charged in the case and will have a preliminary hearing later this month.

Police say Wiggins and Pultro walked into the Rite Aid minutes before closing and asked McClay for help with a product. A struggle ensued and the Navy veteran was fatally shot in the head.
