Additional reward offered in gun store robbery case
Two men are in custody and two are still at large, considered armed and dangerous following a Tuesday afternoon robbery at Fred's Gun Emporium
Police say three suspects entered the store wearing masks and at least one suspect was armed with a handgun.
They say the suspect with the gun pointed it at one employee while the other two suspects broke a glass display and began taking several guns from the display. A second employee walked in on the robbery and the armed suspect shot him. That victim was armed and fired back at the suspects. The suspects fled the scene in a red passenger car.
Police arrested 20-year-old Dequan Deshawn Willard, and 18-year-old Jacob Leslie Pereida on Thursday. They've been charged with aggravated robbery.
Jonah Isiah Garza, 20, 6', 175 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes and Jamie Shakur Garcia, 18, 5'5", 160 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes, are still at large.

We obtained the arrest warrant for Jacob Pereida on Friday morning.
In the documents Lubbock police state they found evidence at his home linking him to the crime.
Authorities say they located the red vehicle they believe was involved.
The owner of the car reported it missing from her Central Lubbock home on Monday.
Officers say when they examined the vehicle, they found a bullet hole in the trunk.
Authorities found the stolen vehicle at the Pine Grove Apartments-the complex where Pereida lives.
Officers searched Pereida's home and say they found two guns matching the serial numbers to two that were stolen from Fred's Gun Emporium, along with a black ski mask and a red and black hoodie.
Pereida says he was not involved in the crime.
According to the documents, Dequan Willard told police that though he was there when the crime took place- he did not enter the store, but stayed in the vehicle the entire time.
However he says he was shot on his lower back.
Lubbock Police just released a statement saying federal authorities are offering up to $2,500 in addition to the Crime Line offer of up to$1,000, leading to the arrest of Garza and Garcia in connection to the robbery.
