Oak Park police have arrested a third and final suspect in an armed robbery that took place at the 7-Eleven convenience store, 240 Chicago Ave., on Dec. 11.

That attempted robbery resulted in the store clerk shooting one of the alleged robbers, a 17-year-old male, who was transported to Loyola Medical Center in Maywood and initially was listed in critical condition.

The new suspect, a male juvenile from Chicago, was arrested on Dec. 27 in Carpentersville, according to police.

He was transported to the Oak Park Police Department and charged with attempted armed robbery and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He is being held in the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center.
