TRUSSVILLE — The Chevron gas station on Chalkville Mountain Road in Trussville was robbed early Thursday morning, according to authorities.
At about 4 a.m. Thursday, the Chevron was robbed at gunpoint, according to Trussville Police Department Capt. Jeff Bridges.
Arrested were 19-year-old Roderick Williams, of Center Point, along with 22-year-old Paulet Williams, also from Center Point. The two are not related. Both are charged with first-degree robbery.
During the robbery, Roderick Williams possessed a .380-caliber pistol, which was discharged, striking his accomplice, Katerra Howard, a 21-year-old black female also from Center Point, in her chest, Bridges said.
The suspects dropped Howard off at St. Vincent’s East, Bridges said.
Trussville police officers apprehended the Williams suspects attempting to flee the hospital a short time after the robbery.
Warrants will be sought on Howard at a later date.
Bridges said three guns and the stolen money are recovered.
