Suspects In Violent Gas Station Robbery Answer to Judge

Three men charged in a violent robbery at a Georgetown gas station, answered to a judge Thursday.

Charles Davis, Dijon Hollinger and Isaiah Lemar plead not guilty at their arraignment. Police say the three men robbed the Shell station on US 25 early Christmas morning.

The clerk, Martin Stephens, was shot in the leg during the holdup. Stephens is in crutches and the bullet still lodged in his leg.

Investigators aren’t saying if the three men are responsible for two other recent robberies at Shell Stations in Georgetown, but do say there are similarities.

Shots were also fired in the others robberies.

All men are charged with robbery. Lemar is also charged with first-degree assault because police say he's the one who shot the clerk.

    this is in particular for " a True Friend". Just how stupid can you be? huh? Are you that ignorant? You want to defend 3 punks who went to a store on Christmas day with pistols, and say they werent trying to hurt the clerk? I really doubt they were going there to wish him a Merry Christmas. These perfect examples of human trash deserve prison time for attempted murder. A mistake you say? 2 2=5 is a mistake. They went there looking to steal and cause harm to others. I for one am glad that the police got there in time and those punks spent Christmas Day in jail where they belong. THEY are extremely lucky that the clerk didnt have a weapon of his own.

    Give me a break. One person thinks that if the store was closed then nothing would have happened. Trust me, they were looking for trouble and would have found it elsewhere. Maybe if all the banks where closed on the days they were robbed we wouldn't have any bank robbers. Another said they are good young men making a bad decision. They are obviously bad boys making a typical bad decision. To cut them slack for what they did would be a bigger crime. You people out there trying to blame everyone else but the ones that did it make me sick. You all better get some smarts as to the real world. If not, please leave it!

    I know all three of the young men and I just want to say that they made a bad decision that morning when they robbed the gas station, it couldv'e been more serious but it wasn't, they obviously weren't trying to hurt the clerk, things just got out of hand!! I know that the boys didn't want to hurt the clerk or want any of this to happen. People make mistakes and you have to forgive them. Yes they did something wrong and have to pay a consequence for it but hopefully their punishment isn't too harsh. They are still young and have their whole lives ahead of them and should be given a second chance.

    Obvious miscarriage of justice. Once more the MAN has induced young men to commit a crime. I will be organizing a march to have the racist and greedy (thanks RALPH) gas station closed down so no more young men will be tempted by the MAN and his cash register.

    First of all, the owner of that gas station is a well respected owner. The location being open is not for greed, but for the customers. People need gas,products, and other items on Christmas day just like any other day. Because it was open, does not give an excuse for the suspects to rob and shot the employee working. Tell me Ralph, did you not go to any business on Christmas day? If you did are you not happy that someone was open? I know travlers are very happy to see a good place open so they can get what they need.

    IF THE OWNER OF THE GAS STATION HAD NOT OF BEEN GREEDY, AND HAD THE STATION CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, THEN THE EMPLOYEE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SHOT. IN THE MEAN TIME THE IDIOTS THAT DID THE CRIME NEED TO BE PUNISHED TO THE MAX. FAR AS I AM CONCERNED HANG THEM.
