He is ac­cused of rob­bing the Stop N' Save con­ve­nience store while bran­dish­ing a shot­gun on Feb. 18, tak­ing an undis­closed amount of money and cig­a­rettes, ac­cord­ing to court fil­ings.

The lat­est charge comes weeks af­ter Lee was re­cently charged on 10 counts of rob­bery with a dan­ger­ous weapon re­lated to a rob­bery at­tempt at For­est Acres Liquor on Feb. 22. He was wounded af­ter be­ing shot mul­ti­ple times by store em­ploy­ees Tina Ring and Ash­ley Lee in the midst of a phys­i­cal con­fronta­tion.
