A suspect in a robbery and shooting at a Harrisonville convenience store on Tuesday has been arrested, according to police.
Harrisonville police circulated photos of a suspect shortly after the robbery occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 1900 block of East Mechanic Street. A clerk was shot in the back during the robbery.
About an hour later, police announced an arrest. Police had posted photos of a suspect on Facebook and within minutes received a tip from a clerk at another convenience store.
The injured clerk was transported by air ambulance to St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City. He went into surgery in critical condition.
