Former B.A. Running Back Arrested Following Armed Robbery

Posted: Updated:

Former Broken Arrow High School running back Devon Thomas was arrested Wednesday night following an armed robbery on Tuesday.

The incident is being looked into by the Broken Arrow Police Department as an armed robbery and shooting with the intent to kill at 113 East Madison.

The victim said Thomas, 18, robbed him at gunpoint with a handgun along with three other suspects. The victim told police that the suspects robbed him of marijuana, money, shoes and clothing. The suspects then reportedly told the victim to leave because they were about to "bust a cap."

When the victim was driving away, the suspects allegedly fired at least one round at the vehicle, one of which narrowly missed the victim's head. The victim said he has known Thomas for several years.

Thomas is scheduled to be a freshman at Oklahoma State in the fall after they recruited him. OSU released the following statement: "OSU is gathering information and has no further comment at this time."

He was arrested on complaints of robbery with an firearm and shooting with the intent to kill. Thomas is being held in Tulsa County Jail on $125,000 bond.

Three other arrests have been made in the incident. 18-year-old's Eduard Smith and De'Carrio Taylor were also arrested on robbery with a firearm and shooting with the intent to kill complaints. They are also being held on $125,000 bond.

One other juvenile suspect was arrested.
