SUN-TIMES MEDIA WIRE - Two Chicago men are among three charged with the armed robbery of a 7-Eleven in which a clerk was shot Monday night in the far western suburbs.

Shortly before 11:30 p.m. Monday, Woods and Storey walked into the 7-Eleven at 404 W. State in Sycamore with a gun, while Bryant remained outside in a vehicle, according to police.
