Police were able to arrest Titus Johnson, but are still looking for the other two suspects.

The manager of the store said the male robbers walked right past their checkout area and into an office at the front of the store, showed him a shotgun and demanded money just after noon. The female stood as a lookout.

He said he decided to fight back and yelled for help and that's when other employees came to his rescue.

"I went and snatched one of the dudes out and the other one got away. The other I beat up," said William Jackson.

The female suspect also got away, police said.

On Thursday, officers released images of the suspects at large. If you can identify them or know anything that could help them in this investigation, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
