2 teens arrested in Memphis ATM killing of woman

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Memphis have arrested two teenagers in the killing of a woman at a banking machine.

WMC-TV reported James Holmes and Bishardo Higgs were charged in two shootings on Oct. 9 at an Orion Credit Union ATM. Both men are 19 years old.

Holmes is charged with first-degree murder in the perpetration of a felony, carjacking, and employment of a firearm. Higgs is charged with especially aggravated robbery.

Investigators say 44-year-old Roneccia Luster was using the ATM when a gun was shoved through her open car window. She was shot when she tried to drive away and died at a hospital. Holmes and Higgs are also accused of then jumping into a convertible and shooting the male driver, who survived his wounds.
