MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A suspect in a gas station robbery caught on camera is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, September 5 for a probation revocation hearing.
The incident happened in Eight Mile on June 30.
Authorities believe Zachery Moore is seen surveillance video taken during the violent robbery. He was on probation for burglary at the time of the crime.
The prosecution said it wants Moore to be held accountable for allegedly violating his probation.
The store clerk told us she will be in court to see how it unfolds.
"I'm not ever going to forget this, but I'm not going to let it ruin my life, no. Not after some little bitty boy no, because I'm a lot stronger," said Melissa Powell.
Police believe Joseph Caples is also seen in the surveillance video, pistol whipping Powell. He is facing a number of charges, including attempted murder. He remains in Mobile Metro Jail.
Powell said Caples tried to shoot her at least three times but the ammunition clip fell out.
"I just said, 'Jesus, help me please.' I'm sorry. I don't rattle until it's that part. I don't get rattled until that," said Powell.
The Mobile County District Attorney's Office said it has a strong case thanks to the surveillance video and Powell's quick thinking.
"I convinced him to carry a TV monitor out, and he thought he had the tape. So I did everything I could to get him out of the store, and when he got out I thought, 'Oh my God! Thank you, Jesus for sending me an idiot to try to kill me,''' Powell said.
The district attorney's office made Moore an offer in return for his guilty plea before a grand jury considers the case. The offer was a blind plea, which means prosecutors made no deal as far as jail time.
Mobile Police are investigating an apparent shooting that left two people dead and one person injured. Witnesses said it happened around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Campus Quarters Apartments on University Boulevard.
