On Monday, officers with the Jacksonville Police Department arrested Michael Deangelo Johnson, and charged him with aggravated robbery. The charge stems from the robbery and shooting of Louise Barnett which occurred in November 2012, at the Austin Bank drive-through.
Johnson, 25, is the second subject to be arrested in this case. Another suspect is currently in custody at the Cherokee County jail on another robbery charge.
Detectives expect to make additional arrests in the near future, and the investigation is ongoing.
"I am grateful for the long hours these detectives have worked to begin making these arrests and ultimately clear this case," said Police Chief Reece Daniel. "Any time a person is shot during the course of a robbery it becomes our number one priority. They are not finished yet, and I fully expect them to arrest the remainder of the people involved soon."
Aggravated robbery is a first degree felony punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison. Due to the sensitive nature of the investigation, JPD will not be releasing any further information at this time.
