LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A teen remains in jail on a $500,000 bond in connection to a deadly shooting at a Kroger on Hubbards Lane in St. Matthews.

Aaron Cross, 18, has been charged with the murder of Jack Combs, 34, who was shot in the chest while walking to his car in a parking lot around 10 p.m. on November 23, 2013.

Another employee found Combs in front of the store where he collapsed.  Combs was rushed to Baptist Hospital East where he was pronounced dead.

Cross and Combs were coworkers at the Kroger location.

Cross was already booked into Louisville Metro Corrections facing unrelated robbery charges when murder charges were filed against him Friday.

Kroger Public Affairs Manager Tim McGurk released the following statement regarding the arrest:

"The entire Kroger family remains saddened by the loss of our co-worker, Jack Combs. We have been working closely with the St. Matthew's police department and providing information to assist with their investigation. This is clearly a police matter and Kroger will have no further comment on what is an ongoing investigation. Kroger expresses our appreciation to the St. Matthew's police department, and to the community for its outpouring of support."

Police are continuing to investigate Combs murder. Officers believe there may be more suspects and are not ruling out the possibility of other Kroger employees being involved.

A $30,000 reward for information concerning Combs murder still stands.
