Deputies have arrested four young men in the robbery of a north Harris County Radio Shack store.
Johnothan Fields, Jerome Harris, Marckel Burns, and Desmond Phillips are each charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon related to an incident at a RadioShack store on Stuebner Airline Road near Louetta Road at around 10 a.m. Wednesday.
One of suspects in the robbery fired a shot from his handgun into the ceiling of the store. The group of men then demanded money and cell phones from inside the display cases. No employees were hurt during the incident.
The robbers fled from the store parking lot in a white van that deputies later recovered behind another business nearby.
Deputies were able to track one of the stolen devices to an apartment complex on Yale Street near West Tidwell Road and all four men were taken into custody.
