We'll update you as more information becomes available.


ORIGINAL STORY: A Cleveland convenience store was robbed and now four men are facing charges. Cleveland police said it happened around 11 p.m. on Saturday at Harry's Food Mart on Michigan Avenue Road.

Surveillance video obtained by Channel 3 showed a store clerk sweeping the floors when three men come into the store with what appears to be guns. The clerk said one of them told him to open the register or he would shoot.

"It is pretty scary because gun is a gun," Anish Shah, the store's owner said.

Shah's nephew was behind the counter when it happened. He said somewhere between $1,500 to $2,000 was taken along with several cartons of cigarettes.

Police said after the men robbed the store, they ran away into the woods. While this was happening, a girls fast-pitch softball tournament was going on nearby.

"They just said 'hey, there's been an armed robbery. They've got high powered rifles. We've got to evacuate the area," Billy Knight, the tournament's director said.

That's what Billy Knight said law enforcement told him. He said hundreds of families were there and it was somewhat chaotic.

The robbers never made it to the park, but Knight saw the surveillance video after Channel 3 showed it to him.

"It looked just like rifles. It really looked like high powered rifles and that's what caused some people to get shocked because they don't know. You don't know when you see guns or toy guns," Knight said.

Police said one of the men ran out of the woods toward Michigan Avenue Road and they arrested him. Avery Ingram was identified as the driver of the get away car.

In their search for the other men, they found a bag with money, cigarettes, and one of the guns, which all turned out to be BB guns.

Law enforcement also arrested Zachary Sharp, Logan Correll, and Kedron Ingram. Police said no one was hurt and all four men taken into custody admitted to their involvement in the robbery.

"Everybody got out safely, but still with everything that goes on these days,  it's hard to stomach really," Knight said.

The four men arrested are charged with aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. They're being held in the Bradley County jail without bond and are expected to be in court on Monday.
