2 charged in armed robbery at Grant Park bar
News


ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Warrants have been issued for two suspects in an armed robbery at a Grant Park bar.

Elijah Jackson, 19, and Shawn Smith, 25, will be charged in the Apr. 1 incident at Augustine's. Both are in the DeKalb County Jail on unrelated charges.

Security footage inside the bar showed the suspects storming the venue. One robbed the bartender while the other stole from customers. It happened so fast, they barely had a chance to react.

"I came in slightly before the incident," Joe Licata said. He is a regular at Augustine's, and like many of the regulars there, he's shaken, but not shocked.

"What I saw was a very strong police response and basically people being a little bit shaken up after what had happened, and everybody pretty much cooperating with police, trying to figure out what had happened," he said.
