The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says it has arrested two more suspects in a Dec. 29 armed robbery at a Papa John’s pizza restaurant on North Druid Hills Road.

“Sheriff’s deputies apprehended 18-year old Lithonia, Georgia resident Damian Lawson without incident at Redan High School on warrants issued Dec. 30, 2016 for multiple counts of Armed Robbery and one count of Aggravated Assault,” a press release from the Sheriff’s Office says. “Mr. Lawson allegedly fired a semi-automatic pistol at an officer who pursued him after he and other accomplices attempted to rob the restaurant and three individuals of cash, an IPhone, car keys and a wallet. A juvenile who is also charged in the incident was arrested today in Stone Mountain without incident.”

Police arrested the third suspect, 18 year-old Nieem Paulino-Davis, on the day of the incident following a police chase. The suspects crashed a vehicle off Ross Road and Highway 78 in Lilburn, the Sheriff’s Office says.
