Suspected serial robber hit with shotgun-heist charge
A man who was shot while reportedly trying to rob a Tulsa liquor store last month was charged in a separate armed robbery.
Tyrone Lee, 36, was charged Tuesday in Tulsa County District Court on a single count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, records show.
He is accused of robbing the Stop N' Save convenience store while brandishing a shotgun on Feb. 18, taking an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes, according to court filings.
The filings indicate that Lee allegedly threatened the store's owner with the gun before leaving the store with the items.
The latest charge comes weeks after Lee was recently charged on 10 counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon related to a robbery attempt at Forest Acres Liquor on Feb. 22. He was wounded after being shot multiple times by store employees Tina Ring and Ashley Lee in the midst of a physical confrontation.
Tulsa police believe Lee is tied to 10 other robberies in Tulsa since January, all of which involved use of a shotgun and threatening employees.
Lee remains held in the Tulsa County jail.
