WYNNE, Ark. -- Three people are now behind bars, accused of holding-up a store clerk and then shooting him several times in Wynne, Arkansas.

Monica Bell, 19, Tyrell Caldwell, 20, and Desmond Dorsey, 19, are facing multiple charges after the incident on October 27 at a truck stop on Highway 64.

Police say the men entered the store waving a gun and demanding cash.

Police say the cashier fought back trying to stop the robbers and said that's when the suspects pulled out a gun.

"They shot this man multiple times. Multiple times and left him for dead," said Wynne Police Detective Bill Colvin.

Clerk Danny New survived the ordeal, but is now paralyzed.

"State police, DTF, our officers here, we all stayed up all night right after it happened trying to chase these people. Every lead we got, we tried to chase it down," said Colvin.

Authorities say the trio is connected to at least six other armed robberies in Crittenden and Cross Counties.

They had a good idea who the suspects were.

Wednesday night, they got a break.

"Then Marion last night were, if I'm not mistaken, robbed, and they actually caught the subjects," said Colvin.

Bell was charged with aggravated robbery, terroristic threatening first-degree, aggravated assault, and tampering with evidence.

Dorsey and Caldwell were charged with theft, commercial burglary, aggravated robbery, tampering with evidence, terroristic threatening first-degree, and aggravated robbery.

In addition, Dorsey also faces a count of criminal mischief second-degree and aggravated assault.

All three suspects are from Earle, Arkansas. They will likely face more charges.
