Suspect shot during robbery

The Ellisville Police Department is investigating a Tuesday morning robbery that left one of the suspects wounded.

Police arrested Ronald Hinton, 18, of Richton, Thomas Hardy, 22, and Matthew King, 19, both of Ellisville.

Investigator Christy Carona said the three men broke into the storage home of Jack Busby on the 200 block of Cleveland Street and attempted to take two air-conditioning units.

She said Busby found the men and held them at gunpoint until police arrived. Busby later shot King in the lower back after he attempted to flee the scene.

Carona said King was transported to South Central Regional Medical Center's emergency room where he was treated and released.

All three men were charged with grand larceny and taken to the Jones County Adult Detention Center on a $5,000 bond each.

Carona said King has made bond and that the other men remained at the detention center.
