ALBION, Mich. — Two Ohio men are facing charges in connection with an armed robbery and assault that put Albion College on lockdown Thursday evening.

According to Albion Police, Brandon Lavon Holloway, 28, and 25-year-old Aric Lamont Holloway were charged Friday with armed robbery and assault with intent to murder.

The robbery happened at around 9 p.m. in the 300 block of E. Broadwell St, according to a release.   Police say the two men robbed another man; one suspect was armed with a pistol and the other had a shotgun.

The suspects then allegedly took off in their vehicle and the victim chased them in his.  They opened fire on the victim while driving in the 900 block of N. Ionia Street, police said.

A police dog later tracked the suspects  to Erie Street after they had abandoned their vehicle near Albion College’s Burns Street Apartments, officials said.

Investigators later recovered a shotgun that had been stolen from Spencerville, Ohio, according to a release.

The incident remains under investigation.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Silent Observer at 517-629-2700 or Albion Police at 517-629-7824.

    I cant believe that 2 more black men would have stolen guns and commit crimes with them. How could that be? I bet they had clean records before this happened.

    To bad!! The younger of the two has been getting in serious trouble his whole young life. The mom is worried about nothing but men and booze. Father gone. The poor kid never had a chance.
