According to police, three black men entered the grocery store on Wednesday morning around 12:45 a.m. and attempted to rob the store.

Responding police officers located a male employee inside the store, suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

All three male suspects were wearing masks on their faces. Police said one man was armed with a gun.

Yorkshire and Smith were arraigned Friday at 2 p.m. Yorkshire's prelim is scheduled for December 6 and Smith's prelim is scheduled for December 7.

Battle's arraignment date has not yet been announced, but the VB General District Court says he will most likely be arraigned on Tuesday because he was taken into custody too late.
