The suspect was one of four South Jersey residents who attempted to rob an acquaintance at gunpoint on Tuesday night in the town of Woodbury.
Despite superior numbers and firepower, the robbers seemed to be lacking in intelligence and somehow managed to inflict injury upon one of their own after attempting to strike the 20-year-old victim with a handgun. The gun went off and the suspect was shot in the hand.
According to NJ.com, the suspects fled but were quickly apprehended by local law enforcement, with the handgun located in the vehicle they were escaping in.
The four suspects were charged as followed:
Branden Wentz, 19, of Logan Township, was charged with robbery, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and weapons offenses.
Doug Henderson, 24, of Camden, was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and hindering apprehension.
Brianna Jimenez, 18, of Logan Township, and Aleem Clark Jr., 18, of Camden, were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.
