Nacogdoches police have charged a 30-year-old man with felony robbery after a Monday morning altercation, and his alleged accomplice remains on the run.

Laquintin Lockhart, of Nacogdoches, was booked into the jail on a single count of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony under the Texas penal code, after an altercation between Lockhart and a homeowner early Monday morning.

Officers were dispatched to the 1800 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Bvld. around 5:36 a.m. Monday after dispatchers got a call from a homeowner called to report someone had broken into his residence. The homeowner told authorities that two people broke into the residence, one of whom was armed.

The homeowner also said he’d fired at the suspects, who ran from the home.

Officers later responded to a local hospital to find someone “suffering from a gunshot wounds to the arm.”

Lockhart was arrested in the 4900 block of NE Stallings Dr. around 2:46 p.m., according to the police department

If convicted, Lockhart could face between five and 99 years incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000.

The second suspect in the break-in had not been arrested as of Tuesday afternoon.
