According to police, 21-year-old Shamon Ontae Elder of Little Oak Street pulled a gun on a 64-year-old victim near the corner of Little Oak and Burney streets at about 7:45 p.m. and stole his cigarettes, money, and lottery tickets.

The victim described the suspect and a vehicle the suspect was in before the robbery, according to police, who said that responding officers located Elder shortly after in the vehicle and arrested him.

Shamon Elder was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and driving on a suspended license.

Cigarettes and lottery tickets...really?

He will be out and back on the street soon. Probation at most in ACC.

No sweat, Shamon.

As a workingman, I always imagined having a job I could walk to. Now, (Shamon) has that job. He could’ve walked to his stick up, but decided to take a car anyway. So jelly!
