Moore County Sheriff Lane Carter said Wednesday that a fourth suspect has been arrested in the June 28 robbery and shooting at the Short Stop convenient store on U.S. Highway 1 in the Lakeview area.

Paris Yusef Mack, 17, of Richards Street in Southern Pines, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and first degree kidnapping.

He was placed in the Moore County Detention Center under a $250,000 secured bond.

Carter said Mack was one of four men who went into the convenience store with guns around 10:30 Monday night. Clerk Grace Kelly - who is in her 70s - was closing the store for the night and husband - 78-year-old Angus Kelly - was in the parking lot waiting for her.

When Angus saw what was happening, Carter said he came to his wife's aid with a shotgun and fired through the store's glass doors with a shotgun - hitting one alleged robber in the face. A gunfight ensued, and both Kellys were wounded.

Angus Kelly was listed in stable condition at UNC Hospitals. Grace Kelly was treated and released from Moore Regional Hospital for a gunshot wound to the arm. Despite the wound, she was able to drive to Chapel Hill to be with her husband who underwent surgery Tuesday morning.

After a two hour search of the area, 17-year-old Randy Joel Williams of 350 Shaw Ave., Southern Pines N.C. was found in a wooded area about a half mile from the shooting. He had a gunshot wound to the face. He was taken to Moore Regional Hospital where he was listed in critical condition after surgery Tuesday.

Demarcus Dennison, 18, of Polkton in Anson County and 20-year-old Leroy Medley of Southern Pines were also arrested. They're each charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and first degree kidnapping.

Both were in the Moore County Detention Center under a $250,000 bond.
