The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart, located at 2659 Olympic St. at about 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24. The victim of the shooting, John Anthony Magliana III, 27, of Bend, is in a local hospital in serious condition and suffered multiple gunshot wounds. Police say his condition has improved.

The two suspects fled the scene in a blue Ford Thunderbird, and were stopped on N St. in West Springfield. One of the suspects was arrested after a short pursuit, with the other suspect arrested a few hours later where he was hiding at a nearby address. Springfield K-9 units were instrumental in the capture of both suspects.

Hillenius is believed to have fired the gunshots, and is charged with first-degree assault and two counts of first-degree robbery. Monpas is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.
