MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A police officer on his way in his patrol car to a part-time job stopped an armed robbery and fired shots at several suspects, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.
The Baldwin County deputy noticed a clerk was being held at gunpoint at a Quick Pantry store in Milledgeville around 5:40 p.m. Saturday, agents said.
As the deputy pulled into the parking lot, the clerk ran out of the store, followed by the robbery suspects, authorities said.
The deputy fired at the men and held two of the three suspects at gunpoint until additional officers arrived, the GBI said in a news release.
No one was injured.
Benita Sha'ty-rone Kelsey, 25, Kemontaye Jashawn Smith, 20, and Justin Malikk Fleming, 19, were all charged with armed robbery. It wasn't known if any of them had lawyers.
