VIDEO: WDEL's Tom Lehman reports.State police arrest a Claymont teenager and are searching for three others after the robbery of a Wilmington-area liquor store in which a clerk was shot and a second victim was assaulted Thursday night.
Police say four suspects went into Cutrona Liquors in the 4600 block of North Market Street Thursday night around 9:15 p.m.
As the suspects entered the store, one of them struck a 58-year-old store clerk in the head with an unknown type of object. The clerk ran from the store and called 911.
One suspect armed with a handgun confronted a 66-year-old store clerk and demanded cash. The clerk refused, and the suspect fired two rounds from a handgun, striking the clerk in the upper body. All four suspects took off from the liquor store without receiving any money but removed a bottle of liquor from a display rack on the way out.
After a search of the area, a Wilmington police officer saw a man matching the description of one of the four suspects walking on Colony Boulevard. Sixteen year-old Obediah York-James of Claymont was then taken into custody.
The 66-year-old victim is being treated for his injuries, which appear to be non-life threatening. The 58-year-old victim was treated for minor injuries.
York-James is charged with robbery, assault and possession of a gun during commission of a felony. He's in the county detention center for lack of $160,000 cash bail.
Detectives are still searching for three other suspects, all believed to be in their mid to late teens.
