KILLEEN (September 5, 2013)--Two Killeen teenagers are named in indictments charging aggravated robbery and car theft in connection with an armed holdup during which the victim was shot and his Cadillac was stolen.
Xavier Jevon Reese and Marion Cortez Robinson Jr., both 17, were named in indictments handed up Wednesday.
A third juvenile, who has not been identified because of his age, was detained in connection with the incident, but he was not named by the grand jury.
Reese, who showed an address on Liberty Street in Killeen, remained in custody in the Bell County Jail Thursday morning in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Bell County Jail records indicate Robinson has never been arrested on the robbery charge.
An arrest affidavit shows Reese, Robinson and the juvenile were arrested on Aug. 15 after the gunpoint robbery neat the intersection of 38th Street and Turner Avenue during which a victim was shot and his Cadillac was stolen.
Court documents show the victim pulled his car up in front of a home in the 3800 block of Turner and stopped when a man approached his car and asked for a cigarette.
During the exchange the assailant pulled a handgun, pointed it at the victim and demanded his valuables, including the car.
Two other men got into the passenger side of the Cadillac and the three drove off.
The victim got into another car and began chasing the suspects while he called police.
When the robbers saw him following them one of the three began shooting at the victim, who was wounded in the gunfire.
When police arrived at the spot where the teenagers stopped the stolen car, one of the three told officers his car had been stolen.
But when police found a cellular telephone inside the stolen car that belonged to one of the robbers.
The victim identified the three suspects at the scene.
