Three arrested for shooting at Overbrook corner store

This post has been updated.

Police have arrested three men in connection with a shooting at an Overbrook convenience store that left the owner critically injured on Tuesday morning.

Around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, two men walked into a corner store on 65th street near Lebanon and ordered a hoagie, then announced a robbery. For whatever reason, the men shot  the store owner in the head and left the store, apparently without taking any cash or goods Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detective Division said.

The men fled in a blue Buick LeSabre. The store owner was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he  was listed in critical but stable condition late Thursday night.

Tips from neighbors led police to Eric Flood, whose car matched the description of the getaway vehicle and was found parked at a Pathmark store on Marshall Road in Upper Darby. Flood, 25, of Overbrook, works at the grocery store and was arrested there Wednesday, Walker said.

Thursday morning around 6 a.m., Devron Lewis, who lives in Darby, surrendered to police. Around 5 p.m. Thursday evening, Devin Miller, who also lives in Darby, surrendered to police.

Miller, 22, and Lewis, 24, were both inside the store at the time of the shooting but it was unclear which one fired at the clerk, police said. There were no other customers inside the store at the time, and the store had no surveillance camera.

The three were awaiting a preliminary court appearance after they were all in police custody.
