Bibb County grand jurors indicted three people Tuesday in connection with two April armed robberies and an attempted armed robbery in which a clerk was shot.

A masked man tried to take the cash register while another masked man stood outside as a lookout, according to Macon police.

The clerk, 32-year-old Ashish Kumar Patel, of Lizella, was shot in the torso during the incident, Bibb County prosecutor Elizabeth Bobbitt said.
