ANDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
The third and final suspect wanted in connection with an armed robbery where an East Texas store clerk was shot in the face, has turned himself in to authorities.
Jhamerrick Milton, 19, turned himself in to the Anderson County Sheriff's Department Monday evening.
Early in the morning of August 18, a single gunman entered Mr. D's Convenience Store in the 3200 block of West Oak Street in Palestine.
During the robbery, officials say the gunman confronted the store clerk with a rifle and demanded money. When the clerk refused, the gunman fired a single shot--striking the clerk in the face, police say.
The store clerk was hospitalized for several days, but has since returned home and is recovering from his injuries.
Two suspects, 17-year-old John Nicholas Hicks and 17-year-old Anthony Robert Mrdjenovich were arrested within days of the incident.
During the course of their investigation, police were able to obtain information that led to an arrest warrant issued for Milton.
The Palestine Police Department believed Milton fled to Louisiana to hide out with family members. The U.S. Marshals Office was enlisted to help located Milton.
Milton is charged with aggravated robbery, a first degree felony.
