LAUREL, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a 20-year-old man for attempted murder and related charges in connection with the shooting of another man in a parking lot in Laurel.

Troopers arrested 20-year-old Rihem Frisby of Laurel on Tuesday when he went to visit his parole officer in Georgetown. In addition to attempted first-degree murder, he is also being charged with first-degree robbery, two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited. He is being held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $255,000 cash bond.

Police said the shooting happened early Monday morning at the Hollybrook Apartments. Troopers said the 25-year-old victim was sitting on the hood of his car when a man approached him and pointed a small handgun at him. According to police, the man demanded the victim give him everything he had. The victim complied and police said that after doing so, Frisby attempted to pistol-whip him in the head.  The victim was able to avoid being struck in the head and began running away, investigators said.
