Cops have arrested three men in the shooting of a clerk in an Overbrook corner store this week, but it's not yet clear whether these suspects can be linked to any other recent store shootings.

Devron Lewis, 24; Devin Miller, 22 and Eric Flood, 25, were charged yesterday with aggravated assault, robbery and other offenses. Miller also was charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting the 38-year-old clerk in the head at a store on 65th street near Lebanon, and Lewis and Flood were charged with attempted criminal homicide.

The clerk remains in critical condition, police said.

Lewis and Miller both live in Darby, police said, and both were arrested within hours of each other at the 18th Police District at 55th and Pine Streets. It's unclear whether they turned themselves in or were brought in for questioning. Flood lives on the 2200 block of North Salford Street.

Investigators said the men walked into the store on Tuesday and shot the clerk after announcing a robbery. The circumstances are similar to those surrounding the murder of three family members in a West Philadelphia grocery store earlier this month, so no doubt police will look closely at these two for any possible connections between the two.
