One person was shot and four people are in custody after a reported robbery in Cedar Park, the Cedar Park Police Department said Thursday.
The CPPD said they responded to a call around 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday in the 3000 block of Colonial Parkway where they found one person with a gunshot wound to his hand. Police reported that the victim advised he was chased by five males with weapons in attempt to steal his backpack. He said he knew one of the suspects.
According to police, the man said he attempted to get help from a nearby resident and as he neared their door, the suspects fired a shotgun, striking him in the hand and causing debris from the door to strike two adult residents inside the home. The residents' injuries were minor and they were not transported by EMS, police said.
Police said the suspects fled the scene with the backpack. They were able to locate four of the five suspects, who have been booked into the Williamson County Jail and charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Those suspects were identified as Donte Perez, Christian Huffman, Justin Stanley and Caleb Besa.
Detectives are still trying to locate an additional male suspect whose identity is unknown, though they believe there is no danger to the public at this time.
