Police and neighbors are calling for the arrest of two men police said are behind a robbery and shooting in Loxley. Police said Camdon Jackson, 19, and Felix Ellis, 20, should be considered armed and dangerous.
“I didn’t know what to say, what to do. I was just shocked. I was just like, ‘wow,’” a neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said.
This neighbor’s morning was rocked by a gunshot that rang across the Fincher Lane cul-de-sac Tuesday morning.
The neighbor said a green-blue truck pulled in front of one of the houses around 10 a.m. She said a girl then got out of the truck and convinced the neighbor’s brother, Andrew Byrd, and Byrd’s friend to come out of the house. That’s when things got dicey.
“The dude hopped out with the gun. ‘Give me your money! Give me your money!” Byrd said.
While one of the suspects took the $20 Byrd had on him, the other went after Byrd’s friend with a gun when the friend ran across the street. The friend, neighbors call “Little Man” was shot in the back of his right leg.
After the shooting, the men police say are behind the crimes, Jackson, 19, and Felix Ellis, 20, fled.
“Little Man” made his way, with Byrd’s help, to the end of the street, where he collapsed. That’s when neighbors called 911.
“They didn’t know my brother was there. Good thing my brother was there, cause I feel like if my brother wasn’t there, they could’ve done anything to him,” Byrd’s sister said. “He probably would’ve been dead. He probably would’ve been dead. Then what?”
Byrd said “Little Man” will be ok though.
“I had talked to him yesterday. He doin’ good. He’s just limping a little bit. But God blessed him to make it up out of the hospital ok,” Byrd said.
Now neighbors just want to see Jackson and Ellis behind bars.
Ellis has also been charged in the past by the Mobile sheriff’s office for assault and drug charges. Loxley police believe he and Jackson may be in either Mobile or Daphne, their home towns. If you know anything about where to find them…call police. But remember, they are considered armed and dangerous.
