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.
