Man shot in Sunday robbery

Police searching for 2 suspects

State Journal Staff Report Published:

A 24-year-old man was shot in the forearm early Sunday morning during a home invasion and robbery, according to a release from Frankfort Police.

Police received a call around 3 a.m. about a shooting on Centennial Avenue. Brandon Byrd and Malcolm Walker, both 24, said they woke up in their apartment to see two men armed with handguns in their home.

The assailants apparently had entered through the unlocked front door, the release states.

The suspects pointed guns at the victims’ backs, put them against the wall and told them to give them everything.

After the gunmen went through Byrd’s pockets, Walker opened the front door to try to flee. That’s when one of the suspects shot him in the arm.

The assailants ran from the scene with an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry. Walker was taken by EMS to Frankfort Regional Medical Center for treatment of the gunshot wound.

The first suspect is described as a 6-foot, 2-inch black male weighing about 190 pounds, possibly with green eyes. He was wearing blue jeans, beige Converse shoes, a thick black jacket and a black ski mask. He had a large revolver, possibly stainless steel.

The second suspect, who shot Walker, is described as a 5-foot, 10-inch black male weighing about 170 pounds. He was wearing sweat pants, a thick black jacket and a red bandanna over the lower part of his face.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Detective Sgt. Jerald Crawford at 502-875-8523.
