The man who attempted to rob a couple in their driveway is at the hospital recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg.

On Friday, Sept. 23, at about 11:35 p.m. LPD received a report of an attempted robbery in the 1800 block of E. 28th street.

According to the Lubbock Police Department, Kedrick Trotty and Christy Trotty pulled into their driveway and were approached by a robber wearing a black ski mask and wielding a handgun. The robber, identified by police as Jamarcus Johnson, threatened Kedrick, the driver, demanded money, and demanded that Kendrick get out of the vehicle. 

While Johnson was focused on the driver, the female passenger, Kendrick's wife, got a handgun from their car and was able to hand it to her husband. The driver fired several rounds at the armed suspect, hitting him once in the leg. 

The suspect ran from the scene but was soon located by responding officers at the corner of E. 28th Street and Martin Luther King Blvd. Johnson was taken to UMC with non life-threatening injuries and was admitted. The victims were not injured in the aggravated robbery attempt.

The suspect has been released to the custody of Lubbock County Deputies and will be taken to jail upon his release from UMC.

Jamarcus Johnson, 22, is charged with aggravated robbery and misdemeanor warrants.
