A Lubbock County grand jury indicted Carlos Guevara, 22, of Levelland for aggravated robbery on Tuesday. 

Police say Guevara was with Julian Begay in the early morning hours of June 27 near 48th and Avenue Q when Begay was shot and killed by a Lubbock police officer.  LPD says Begay pulled a gun on the officer who shot Begay in self-defense.

Guevara was arrested as part of that same incident.  He later admitted he and Begay beat a man with a gun and sole his wallet the night before the deadly shooting.  Guevara's confession said the victim was leaving Ci-Ci's Bar near 50th and avenue P when he was assaulted and robbed.

If convicted Guevara could face from 5 to 99 years or life in prison.
