AMHERST Co., Va. (WSET) -- Amherst County officials are looking for a man they say is on the run, charged with murder.

Floyd Archie, Jr. is one of three people charged in the murder of a man at a barbershop in Madison Heights last October.

Police said Troy Tyrone Roberson, 41, was murdered on October 25.

Roberson was murdered in the parking lot just outside Duvall's Barber Shop where he worked. He was found with multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Lynchburg Police Department helped the sheriff's office arrest Floyd Alex Archie, Jr. 18, of Lynchburg at a home on Early Street in March.

He's charged with second degree murder.

Kaitlyn Webber, 18, was charged with Roberson's murder in November.

Rodney Andrew Hamlette, 19, of Lynchburg, was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshal Service in Baltimore, Maryland in March and also charged with second degree murder.

Archie posted a $50,000 bond on March 30, which was granted by the general district court.

The Commonwealth's Attorney appealed that bond on the same day, but lost when the circuit court approved it.

Archie was set to appear in court on June 1 for a motion to revoke the bond, but he didn't show up.

He didn't show up for a second court date on Thursday and is now considered a fugitive.

The Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney asks if you know anything about the whereabouts of Archie to call your local law enforcement office.
