OSU RB Accused of Armed Robbery, Shooting to Kill
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State running back Devon Thomas has been jailed in Tulsa on felony complaints of armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill.
A Broken Arrow Police Department report says the victim of Tuesday’s robbery told officers that Thomas robbed him at gunpoint. The victim said at least three other people were involved.
One suspect also fired into the victim’s vehicle as he was trying to leave. Police say at least one round entered the victim’s rear windshield and nicked the driver’s headrest — narrowly missing the victim’s head.
Police say Thomas denied brandishing a weapon or shooting during the incident.
An OSU spokesman declined to comment, saying the school is still gathering details about the incident. Thomas is a freshman who enrolled early for the spring semester.
