Another pharmacy robbery


By Shannon McDonald

Police responded to a robbery yesterday at the Oxford Circle Pharmacy around 2:30 p.m.

Two gunmen went into the store demanding money and drugs, then opened fire. There were three employees and three customers in the store at the time. One employee was able to trigger the silent alarm, and another suffered a bullet graze to the head.

Everyone in the store was able to leave out the back door, and the two gunmen were arrested.
