Authorities have arrested a Gallatin man wanted in connection with a recent shooting and separate armed robbery.
T’omas Woods, 22, is charged with aggravated robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, according to court records. He was taken into custody July 13 at a residence on Pemberton Street.
On June 18, Gallatin police say a 20-year-old male reported that two masked suspects stole $750, shoes and a cellphone from him at Lock 4 Park. The victim added that one of the suspects also held a gun to his head and kicked him multiple times in the back during the attack.
At the time, the victim was at the park with 19-year-old Alexzandrya Hernandez, according to police. However, Hernandez fled after the robbery and never reported the crime.
“Hernandez’s cellphone was searched, which led to the discovery that she had contacted T’omas Woods just before picking up (the victim) and immediately after the robbery occurred as she was leaving Lock 4 Park,” Investigator Glen Pryor wrote in an affidavit filed in Sumner County General Sessions Court.
Video from Hernandez’s Snapchat account was also obtained, which showed her in a vehicle with Woods two hours before the robbery, Pryor added. Woods was also seen handling a handgun in the video.
The victim, who was familiar with Woods, also said the 22-year-old matched the physical description of one of the suspects, according to court records.
Additionally, police say a mother and daughter from a separate case identified Woods as being the person who shot at their car on Pemberton Street near Union Park on July 10 following a fight that occurred earlier that evening. No injuries or damage to the vehicle were reported.
Woods is scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on Aug. 4. A criminal hearing for Hernandez, who is also charged with aggravated robbery, is also scheduled to take place the same day.
