      Store clerk, husband, suspect injured in Moore County NC

      Store clerk, husband, suspect injured in Moore County shooting :: WRAL.com

      Lakeview, N.C. — Moore County deputies detained three men and continued their search for at least one other Tuesday following an armed robbery and shooting at a convenience store that injured three people.

      The robbery happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Monday at the Exxon Short Stop Food Mart at the intersection of U.S. Highway 1 and Camp Easter Road in Lakeview.

      Store clerk, Grace Kelly, 75, her husband, Angus G. Kelly, 78, and one of the suspects were shot during the robbery, according to Moore County Sheriff Lane Carter.

      The men in custody are Leroy Richard Medley, 20, of 1193 W. Indiana Ave. in Southern Pines; Demarcus James Dennison, 18, of 572 School St. in Polkton; and Randy Joel Williams, 17, of 350 Shaw Ave. in Southern Pines. The identity of the man being sought hasn't been released.

      Medley, Dennison and Williams have been charged with two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count each of first-degree kidnapping and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Medley and Dennison were being held Tuesday in the Moore County Detention Center under $250,000 bonds.

      Williams was taken to Moore Regional Hospital, where authorities said he underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition.

      According to investigators, Angus Kelly put the family dog in his Jeep Cherokee Monday night and went to the store to pick up his wife. When he saw the robbery, he grabbed his shotgun and fired a shot through the store window, shooting Williams in the face.

      One of the men fled the store, and the two others used Grace Kelly as a shield to get out of the store. That’s when, investigators said, they believe an exchange of gunfire occurred that ended with Angus Kelly being shot twice in the side and his wife in the arm.

      "He saw his wife and did what he thought was right," Carter said.

      Grace Kelly was treated at Moore Regional Hospital and released. She returned to the crime scene with a bandage around her arm and then drove herself to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, where her husband was undergoing surgery.

      Angus Kelly was listed in serious condition Tuesday afternoon, according to hospital spokesman Tom Hughes.

      Authorities responding to the shooting began a ground search, and a helicopter with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol was called in to assist. Heat-seeking imaging from the helicopter helped find two of the suspected robbers near some railroad tracks behind the store, investigators said.

      Interviews with those two men led to the arrest of a third suspect at a residence in Southern Pines, authorities said. The fourth man, who authorities said served as the getaway driver, escaped in a dark blue SUV.

      The men might have been responsible for three, possibly four, armed robberies from Moore County to Charlotte, according to Carter.
      Wishing Mr. Kelly a speedy recovery.

      And wishing the fourth suspect a painful and debilitating infection in a (hopefully) existing bullet wound, which eventually forces him to seek medical attention and results in his arrest.

      Robbers are scumbags.

      Seems to me there are more stories like this lately. I think because people are getting to be better shots and are wounding/killing the BGs, instead of just scaring them off.

      I believe that more people are just fed up with the status quo of the legal system. Way to many examples of repeat offenders repeating even while out on bail. Best of wishes for those who stand up for themselves.

      This is minutes from my home. This is a franchise super pumper station operated like a small mom and pop. Thank God grampa Kelly had the foresight to bring his shotgun when picking up his wife. These guys should die a cowards thousand deaths. The Moore Co. sheriffs dept. is one to be very proud of. I know Sheriff Lane Carter, he signed my CCW permit. This guy is nothing but business 24/7and so is every one of his very capable deputies. And at the same time some of the easiest guys/gals to know.

      Angus Kelly succumbed to his wounds over the past weekend. This story is too sad for words. It seems to me that scum like this is more and more often hurting good folks in spite of getting what they want.

      Rest in peace, Angus.

      I hope this results in at least one death penalty and three life sentences. I would not complain about 4 death sentences.
