(KMOV) -- Two individuals have been charged in connection to the pizza delivery robberies and police assault in St. Louis, Thursday.

Terance Cornell Irons, a 16 year old, has now been certified to stand trial as an adult. Warrants were issued for 2 counts of 1st degree assault on a law enforcement officer.  A Judge set bond at $100,000, cash-only. 

The second suspect, 23 year-old Cory Morris, is being charged with 1st degree robbery, and armed criminal action. He is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
 
According to authorities, police shot and wounded one of the robbery suspect who they say pulled a gun on officers. Authorities said that the suspect and two others were targeting pizza delivery drivers.
 
The officer-involved shooting took place around 12:15 a.m. on Thursday in the 4200 block of Bingham in south St. Louis.
 
According to investigators, a pizza delivery man was making a delivery when he was robbed.
 
A teenager and two other suspects allegedly took the driver’s cash, pizzas and a gun that the driver was carrying. 
 
The pizza company called other local pizza restaurants and told them what had happened.
 
A short time later, a second pizza restaurant received a call for a delivery and the call-back phone number was the same phone number linked to the first robbery.
 
When police arrived on the scene, they say a white van, which was driven by the Irons, tried to run over them. Police then opened fire and the van hit the police car.
 
Police say a teen suspect with a gun then got out of the van.
 
Irons was shot in the hand and leg when the officers opened fire on the van. He ran from the scene, but was caught a short time later along with a second suspect. Hi injuries were not considered life-threatening.
 
Officers are searching for a third suspect who may also be wounded.
 
Police say its common practice for pizza places to call each other and alert them when something like this robbery happens.
 
The officers involved have been put on administrative leave - that's standard procedure.
