Three Suspects Arrested in Robbery Attempt/Shooting

Three suspects have now been arrested for their alleged involvement in the crime, according to the Fairfield Police Department

Detectives received a tip that a juvenile from Fairfield had been treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder on Friday, August 13. Authorities confirmed the identity of the suspect and arrested him in a park on the 2900 block of Camrose Avenue late Monday afternoon.

The lead detective in the case spotted the second suspect while in court Monday for an unrelated case. Fairfield police say the investigator knew18-year-old Andrew Holiman from previous incidents and recognized the distinctive clothing and jewelry he was wearing from the surveillance video.

A third suspect, 22-year-old Tyrone Webb, was arrested for allegedly driving the suspects during the course of the crime.

Surveillance video shows two suspects, clad in black hooded sweatshirts and carrying revolvers, walking into the Metro PCS store just after 3:15 p.m. on Friday.

Seconds after entering the store, one suspect hops over the counter as the other gunman steps over to the other side of the store and aims at a store employee. That clerk's hand, holding a pistol, enters the frame of the video and takes a shot, and the two suspects duck and flee the store.

Police say Metro PCS stores are often targeted by robbers because they deal with a lot of cash transactions.

A year ago, an employee at a Suisun City Metro PCS store was killed execution-style during a robbery. A suspect in that case was arrested.
