LONGVIEW, Texas (KETK) – A Longview man was indicted for his connection to a robbery where he allegedly injured a resident in a home intrusion with an AR-15.
20-year-old Tiylor Green was indicted on June 6. Green along with two others allegedly broke into a Longview home back on Aug. 30, 2020, in the 300 block of Tammy Lynn Drive, a neighborhood just off of Gilmer Road.
Green was carrying an AR-15 with a red mask on and demanded money from two people who lived there.
While he was taking cash from a wallet, a third resident snuck into the back of the house to grab a gun. He returned and fired multiple rounds at the intruders, hitting Green in the leg, according to the documents.
Green was taken to the hospital and doctors called the police. He denied to an officer that he was even at the home during the robbery.
The officer took a blood sample and three months later results showed that his blood matched the DNA of blood found at the scene.
Police took him into custody on Feb. 23 after a three-month search. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.
“Mr. Green actually went out of radar at that time. We were actively looking for Mr. Green, but we were unable to locate him until his latest arrest in February,” said Brandon Thornton, with the Longview Police Department. “The other two suspects have been identified. We are fairly certain we know who they are. We have taken that case and sent it over to the DA’s office to get a grand jury consideration.”
