Devon Thomas, Broken Arrow football player and Oklahoma State University recruit, arrested

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - A recent Broken Arrow High School graduate and Oklahoma State University recruit was arrested this week on complaints of armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill.

Devon Thomas, 18, was taken into custody Wednesday after a Tuesday robbery where one gunshot was fired.

According to Thomas' arrest report, Broken Arrow police investigated an armed robbery near Elm and Kenosha Tuesday.  The victim identified Thomas, saying he was one of at least four suspects involved.

Police say the victim told investigators Thomas was armed with a handgun when the suspects took the victim's shoes, money, clothes and marijuana.

According to the report, the suspects told the victim to leave before they "bust a cap."

As the victim was leaving, police say one of the suspects fired at least one round into his vehicle.  The shot entered through the rear windshield, striking the driver's headrest and narrowly missing the victim's head.

The victim told police he'd known the suspects for several years prior to the robbery.

When police made contact with Thomas Wednesday he denied holding the gun or shooting it during the robbery.

He was placed under arrest and transported to the city jail before his transfer to David L. Moss.  Thomas is being held on $125,000 bond.

Thomas, who graduated this month from BAHS, is enrolled at OSU for the 2014-15 school year where he was recruited by the football program.
