On August 19, deputies with the Smith County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the 5300 block of Broken Bow in Tyler concerning a burglary/robbery in progress.
The occupants at the location observed several black males pulled up to the residence driving a black car.
The black males then entered the location, and displayed firearms in an attempt to rob the occupants.
While inside the residence, the black males engaged the occupants of the resident about money and other potential items. During the course of this violent activity, one of the accused robbers fired a gun inside the home to intimidate the occupants.
When deputies arrived in the area, the black males fled the area in a black Cadillac displaying a dealer’s tag. The car was later found unoccupied at the dead end of Canyon circle.
