Police: Man robs store, fires shot | Crime
Officers arrested a man they said helped rob a northeast Charlotte business.
At about 11 p.m. Thursday, officers were called to the Fast Mart on Tom Hunter Road, near the Hidden Valley neighborhood.
A clerk at the store told police a man with a pistol demanded cash from the register, snatched money from a customer's hand, then fired a shot into the store before he jumped into a getaway car.
No one was hurt, and police were able to get a detailed description of the armed robber and the getaway car. A short time later, an off-duty officer saw a matching vehicle nearby and called it in.
Police pulled over the car on Gibbon Road, but said the passenger jumped out and ran away. That person has not been located. Officers arrested the driver, who witnesses later identified.
Clavon William Sanders, 36, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.
