The Waynesboro Police responded to an armed robbery and shots fired at a Stop-In Shell gas station on Broad Avenue.

Police say Travis Stevens, Malcolm Crawford and Richard King went into the gas station and pulled out a .22 caliber handgun.

"He demanded cash from the teller who was working there," said Sgt. Brian Edwards of the Waynesboro Police Department. "He felt she was not going fast enough or giving him all the money so he fired off a round right over her shoulder."

The three suspects got away on foot with $140 and headed to an apartment complex on Port Republic Road. While police investigated the gas station robbery, they received another call about a woman being assaulted.

"The next thing I knew a guy was running towards us and he had a knife in his hand," said Crystal Fulton, "he told me to leave."

When police arrived on the scene, they saw an individual go into an apartment with a handgun. They then took action on apartment C4.

"When it all started and I knew what was going on, I was quite afraid because my kids and husband were sleeping," said Jennifer who is a resident of the complex.

Police say that after the robbery Crawford and Stevens had a falling out. Crawford along with Richard Goodwin went to Steven's apartment on the first floor and robbed his apartment.

At this point, Stevens, Crawford and King have been charged with the robbery of the gas station. All three are in the Augusta County Jail. In addition, Crawford and Goodwin have been charged with the break in of Steven's apartment. Goodwin is out on bail.
