INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man arrested in a violent store robbery last August that sent one clerk to the hospital has gotten a plea deal in the case.
According to IMPD, 44-year-old Paul Shipp was charged in an attack at the Liquor Barn on East New York Street last year.
The clerk Shipp attacked suffered injuries resulting in a broken nose.
“I’ve never seen nothing like this happen before and I thought someone was going to lose their life,” said Christor Lee who was outside the store when the attack happened.
Shipp will plead guilty to robbery resulting in bodily injury, a level three felony. He will be sentenced on Feb. 26.
45-year-old Lamarr Coleman was with Shipp when the robbery occurred and tried to leave the store with a box of cash and liquor. He was arrested on a preliminary charge of robbery in August. Coleman is due back in court on April 4 for a pretrial conference.
