SEATTLE -- Police have arrested two men on suspicion of stealing a 12-pack of beer from a First Hill gas station last Friday, shooting a clerk in the foot in the process.

The robbery took place shortly after 8 p.m. at the 76 station in the 900 block of James Street. According to the Seattle Police Department, a man walked into the business, grabbed the beer and left. When two employees chased him, he shot one in the foot before getting into a waiting car and driving off, according to police.
