Store clerk still in critical shape

The family of an Indianapolis convenience store clerk shot in the head during a robbery says her prognosis is uncertain and that she’s been placed in a medically induced coma. Marcell Birnell, 45, was shot early Friday while working at a Village Pantry store at West 86th Street and Ditch Road. Birnell has frequently worked the night shift at the store for nearly 10 years. A 15-year-old student at nearby North Central High School has been arrested on preliminary charges of attempted murder and attempted robbery.
