Armed robbery suspects charged

A man was shot during an armed robbery at a residence on Fan Branch Lane in Chapel Hill early Wednesday morning.

Carrboro police apprehended four suspects shortly after Chapel Hill police responded to a report of an armed robbery. The victims reported that they returned home to discover three intruders, and two of the victims struggled with the suspects. During the struggle, a suspect’s handgun fired, shooting one of the suspects in the leg, and the suspects fled the scene.

The suspect who was shot has been identified as Jaquay Lamar Blacknail, 18, of 3203 Bach Terrace in Greensboro. He will be charged with armed robbery upon release from the hospital. Patrick Cole Clark, 17, of 3708 Hazel Lane in Greensboro, and Ryan Craig Gartrell of 5122 Southwind Road in Greensboro have been charged with armed robbery and felony breaking and entering. Taumafalofi Leasiolagi, 18, of 2201 Pisgah Church Road in Greensboro has also been charged with armed robbery.

Clark, Gartrell and Leasiolagi are being held in Orange County Jail under $4,000 secured bond.
