Man linked to Hy-Vee shotgun incident faces aggravated robbery, firearm charges

November 6, 2012


A 29-year-old Lawrence man could face more than 20 years in prison after being charged in Douglas County District Court on Monday for allegedly brandishing a shotgun during an Oct. 18 robbery of another man outside of Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway.

Antonio M. Douglas faces one count each of aggravated robbery and criminal possession of a firearm following his arrest last week. Police had been searching for Douglas as a suspect in the Oct. 18 incident, in which multiple witnesses reported seeing a man with a shotgun outside the store around noon.

Douglas’ bond was set at $75,000. The aggravated robbery charge is a level-3 person felony that carries a maximum of 20 years in prison, while the firearm charge is a level-8 nonperson felony, punishable by up to 23 months in prison.

Douglas is currently on probation for a 2010 robbery in Douglas County.

Compared to all the other towns in Kansas I've lived in, Lawrence is all nice. For example, Salina...enough said.

Obviously you haven't driven around that part of town very much. There are some areas that look like Mad Max could roll out at any second.

I live in that area and you are completely off-base. Need to get out more it sounds like.

Who robs a guy at the corner of Clinton & Kasold with a shotgun?

This looks like a good place to sneak up on an unsuspecting pedestrian and avoid witnesses...
