Update: Two of the suspects, Julius Adams and Kendric Wharton, were arraigned in court on Friday.

Wharton, the driver, faces charges of failure to comply and aggravated robbery. His bond was set at $350,000.

Adams, who faces charges of aggravated robbery, had his bond set at $250,000.

Previously:

What began as a robbery at a store in the West End turned into a brief but wild car chase, followed by a crash, a shot fired, arrests, and a suspect found dead at his own hand.

The incident started Thursday night as a robbery at the Family Dollar store on Central Parkway. Two men with guns walked in.  Police say it appeared they ran to a waiting getaway car after the robbery.

Within moments the police spotted a car near the store, and within moments after that the car crashed a few blocks away from the store.

Police reported shots fired during a subsequent foot chase.  There was no report of police being injured,  but after a few minutes police began a search for one of the suspects, who had reportedly shot himself.  After a while he was found dead.  Police said he had a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Police quickly arrested the driver of the car and a passenger.  At least one of those two was injured and taken to the hospital.  The SWAT team was called up at one point in case it was needed.
