POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) - Poplar Bluff police Monday arrested three people suspected in a weekend home invasion.
Officers arrested Keith Taylor, 27; Mercedes Patterson, 24; and Cameron Cook, all of Poplar Bluff.
Around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, officers went to a home in the 1300-block of South 10th Street about a person being shot during an armed home robbery.
The victim told police that two black males entered the home, wearing masks and demanded money, Hicks said.
The suspects took $4,500 from the victim's purse but asked for more, Hicks said.
"When no further money was presented, one of the suspects fired a shot, striking one of the victims," Hicks said.
Captain J.R. Keirsey with the Poplar Bluff Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division said all three suspects are being questioned and held pending charges.
