TYLER - Smith County Sheriff's Deputies arrest a man they say shot the manager of a local club during a robbery.
24-year-old Roderick Pierson of Lindale is charged with aggravated robbery.
He's in the Smith County Jail on a $500,000 bond, authorities say Pierson and someone else robbed the manager of the Club Reo on Loop 323 early last Friday as the man left the building.
