WACO, Texas (KWTX) A man accused in an attempted armed robbery at a local pizza shop in June that left an employee wounded, has been indicted.

Leonard Black, of McGregor, was indicted by a Waco Grand Jury Wednesday on a charge of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

"I hope this system does what they need to do to them after what he did to that young lady, she didn't deserve any of that," Beverly Hills Police Chief Thomas Schmidt told KWTX Wednesday.

Black was arrested in June following a robbery attempt at the Little Caesars on S. Valley Mills Dr. in Beverly Hills that left a worker shot.

Schmidt said GPS information from a vehicle showed Black close to the scene minutes before the shooting, and video showed him running away.

Beverly Hills PD, alongside the McLennan County Sheriff's Office FAST Unit and the U.S. Marshals made the arrest thanks to a tip.

No money was exchanged but the suspect reportedly fired a round, hitting a female employee.

She was taken to the hospital and survived.
