This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details.

Three people, two of them on parole, have been arrested in connection with a shooting at a Lynwood meat market that left two Good Samaritans injured, authorities said Monday afternoon.

One of the victims was shot in the chest and was not expected to survive, authorities said. The other was wounded in the hand.

The incident began Sunday, authorities said, when a man stormed into the store in the 11800 block of Atlantic Avenue, pulled out a gun and robbed the cashier. She fled to a neighboring business, where she told workers she had been robbed. Two of the workers confronted the suspect as he was leaving the market, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

One of the workers was armed with a knife and stabbed the robber in the neck, the department said. The robber shot at both workers and fled in a van.

A fews hours later, a man received treatment at a nearby hospital for a stab wound to the neck. Detectives determined that he was the suspected robber, authorities said. He was arrested, along with the alleged driver of the van and a third person suspected of helping with the robbery.

The suspected shooter was identified as Kyle Henderson, 30, who is on parole, the Sheriff's Department said in a statement. Also arrested was parolee Terrance Fair, 47, suspected of driving the van. The third person arrested, a woman, was identified by authorities as Ischa Criner, 42.

All three are Lynwood residents and were being held Monday afternoon without bail, according to authorities.
