    (Published Monday, May 20, 2019)

    Police have made an arrest in connection to a gas station shooting in which an employee needed surgery after being shot in the abdomen following an attempted robbery in Attleboro, Massachusetts.

    Ashley Weaver, 28, of Boston, allegedly shot a clerk at a Mobil Gas station during a robbery attempt on May 20. During the robbery, the suspect was wearing a monkey mask in a similar fashion to another robbery in Providence, Rhode Island a day prior.

    Weaver allegedly approached the gas station employee with a gun and demanded money. When the clerk said he had no money to give her, a struggle ensued.

    "One gunshot round was discharged from the weapon and struck the clerk in the lower abdomen," Attleboro Police Lt. Brian Kelley said.

    He said a nearby officer heard the gunshots, responded to the scene and was flagged down by the wounded clerk. The employee was taken to a Rhode Island hospital and suffered a non-life threatening injury.

    The suspect was taken into custody after she was pulled over on Hayward Street in Providence, police said. Detectives had previously obtained a warrant for her arrest on charges that include armed assault with the intent to rob, possession of a firearm and assault and battery with a firearm.

    Authorities said she has three active warrants for armed robbery and assault-related offenses in Boston.
