GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Gaffney police arrested two more people Wednesday in connection with a robbery where a clerk fired shots, wounding one of the four suspects.
Gaffney Police Chief Richard Turner said several people entered the Bargain Spot on Cherokee Avenue about 8 p.m. and forced the clerk to hand over cash. One of the people was armed with a semi-automatic rifle, Turner said.
Turner said the clerk then reached for his own gun, which was under the counter, and fired several rounds, wounding one of the people.
Turner said authorities were able to find one of the suspects, identified as 22-year-old Lee Tate Jr., about a block and a half away, hiding behind a building. He said Tate's head and one of his legs were wounded by the clerk's gunshots.
Police said they also arrested 19-year-old Demond Guyton, 25-year-old Tyrus Davidson and 26-year-old Shawmund Wray in connection with the holdup.
All four men were charged with armed robbery.
During his bond hearing Tuesday afternoon, Tate apologized to the clerk.
"I am not mad at what you did to me," Tate said. "I deserved it."
Tate was denied bond. Guyton was given a $50,000 bond. Bond information for Davidson and Wray was listed as pending.
The clerk was not injured in the robbery, Turner said.
