MADISON, Tenn. - A man was taken to the hospital after being shot during a robbery at a gas station.

Metro police said two men wearing hooded sweatshirts walked into the Shell gas station on Gallatin Pike after 2 a.m. Sunday.

According to officers, that's when the men ordered the two clerks to get on the ground.

Police said the robbers took the cash from the register, but before they ran away, one of them allegedly shot one of the clerks.

That clerk was taken to Skyline Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. He was expected to make a full recovery.

Authorities said the second clerk wasn't hurt.

Three people believed to be involved in the robbery were taken into custody, but at last check police had not filed any charges.

Two of them police believed to be the robbers. The third was possibly the driver.

All three arrived at Skyline later in the morning because one of them had a gunshot wound to his leg. That injury was possibly an accident related to a separate incident.

Those taken into custody matched the descriptions given to police by the robbery victims.

No further details were available. The investigation was ongoing.
