A man who took a gun away from an alleged robber and shot two other men who police say were trying to rob him has been arrested and is facing a murder charge.
Jarrell Ivory Chaney, 31, became the robbery target of two men and a juvenile on Tuesday, but he was able to disarm the juvenile and all three suspects began running away, according to a news release from Irving police.
The victim shot the two older suspects — 18-year-old Ishmeal Smithson and 19-year-old Theophilos Greer — to death, the release said. Chaney allegedly first shot Greer, who later died at the hospital, and then shot and killed Smithson, the release said.
The juvenile suspect was uninjured and was later located and interviewed, according to police.
