Antwan T. Robinson currently faces a single count of aggravated robbery. Court records show Robinson is being held at the New Century Adult Detention Center, just outside of Gardner, on a $250,000 bond.
Robinson is accused of holding up the Shawnee liquor store, located at 15810 Shawnee Mission Parkway, around 8:30 Thursday evening. He is said to have held an employee and clerk at gunpoint, demanded money and then forced both people into a cooler so he could make his escape.
Previous report on the Halftime Liquor Store robbery and chase.
Shawnee Police happened to be just around the corner when the robbery occurred and arrived at the scene in time to see the suspect getting into a black Chevrolet Cobalt. Those officers pursued the vehicle into Kansas City, Kansas, where they lost sight of it.
The vehicle was spotted again shortly after midnight, sparking a car chase which ended after Robinson was shot by Shawnee Police on Interstate 70 near Kansas Highway 7. Robinson allegedly drove westbound in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70, after being shot. His vehicle collided with a FedEx truck and Robinson ran from the crash scene.
Kansas City, Missouri Police had their helicopter overhead and quickly helped officers on the ground locate and apprehend Robinson. He was transported to the University of Kansas Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left forearm.
Sources tell Operation 100 News that Antwan Robinson is the same man who at least twice held up the Temp Stop convenience store, 13515 W. 63rd Street in Shawnee, both times he is said to have handcuffed the clerk with zip ties before fleeing. Robinson could face more than 15 felony charges in connection with numerous robberies across Johnson and Wyandotte counties, according to our sources.
