Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says they have arrested two male suspects involved in an alleged armed robbery and shooting incident on Monday night.
Ramsay posted to his Facebook account,
"Investigators arrested those responsible for the robbery and shooting at the computer store on London Road last night. We are fortunate to have the best of the best keeping our City safe!"
Authorities say two male suspects wearing hoodies and masks entered ILF Smartphone Clinic at 1709 London Rd. just after 7:15 p.m.
The suspects then allegedly demanded money.
Police say the owner of the business, 27-year-old Colin Mackin, was shot in the shoulder by one of the suspects after a struggle outside of the business.
Mackin was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Duluth with non life-threatening injuries. Hospital officials say he is in "good" condition.
Mackin posted on his Facebook page about the shooting, and said he is grateful to God for his survival.
The two suspects fled the store with property and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police say a 29-year-old and 32-year-old suspect were both arrested on Tuesday. They were located on the 1800 block of East Second Street.
Public Information Officer Jim Hansen said evidence at the scene and statements taken led to the arrests.
Police say a .22 caliber revolver was found during the arrests.
When asked about history with the suspects, Hansen said they have had some minor contact with them, but nothing major like this recent incident.
The suspects, both from Duluth, are currently lodged in St. Louis County Jail awaiting formal charges.
Hansen said that Mackin is very fortunate, and that while he's not going to second guess what happened that night, no money or property is worth someone's life.
"We'd prefer a call about a robbery like this before any type of confrontation," Hansen added.
