BRYAN, Texas -- UPDATE: Rafeal Antione Ginn has been arrested and taken into custody for aggravated robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, evading arrest/detention, resisting arrest, and attempting to take a weapon from a peace officer.
According to Bryan Police, Ginn was found inside a Chevy Tahoe near the scene of an earlier armed robbery at the Stripes store at 2000 South College Avenue. Ginn was laying down in the backseat, with his face covered, apparently trying to hide.
When police asked him to put his hands on the roof of the car, Ginn refused. Instead he took off his gloves and shoes and ran out of the vehicle. Police chased after him, and while taking him into custody Ginn reached for one of the officer's rifles multiple times.
Ginn is believed to be one of the suspects in the robbery of the Stripes store, that resulted in an officer being shot while searching for the suspects.
The officer was responding to an aggravated robbery call at 2000 South College Avenue. According to police, several suspects entered the store around 1:17am, one of them had a gun.
At 1:56am, the officer contacted one of the suspects near Duncan and South College, where the suspect shot at the officer and took off. The officer's ballistic vest kept him from serious injury. He was treated and released at a nearby medical facility.
Thursday morning Bryan Police asked that people stay clear of the area between Texas Avenue, Finfeather, Carson and Dodge while they search for the suspects.
