KILGORE (KYTX) - Three suspects including two juveniles have been arrested in connection to an armed robbery at a Kilgore convenience store.

On Sunday, December 29, 2013, at 2:58 a.m. Kilgore Police responded to EZ Mart (convenience store), 600 Houston St., Kilgore, Texas due to an armed robbery.

Police arrived and met with the store clerk who reported three persons had just robbed the store and fled. Initial investigation revealed the three persons approached the store with one remaining outside. Two entered and one pointed a handgun at the store clerk. The clerk was forced to open the register and fill a bag with cash and tobacco products. All three fled the scene and the clerk was left unharmed.

Both juvenile suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Gregg County Juvenile Detention Center. Both were also charged with Aggravated Robbery. The handgun and some stolen property were recovered by police.
