MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery police have charged a 20-year-old in connection to a shooting and a robbery.

Josiah Armon Richardson is charged with robbery first degree and shooting or discharging into an occupied building or vehicle.

Capt. Regina Duckett says the charges are related to two incidents that took place on April 2. The first was a shooting which happened around 3:45 a.m. in the 5900 block of Monticello Drive. Shortly after the shooting, a woman told officers she had been robbed in the 700 block of Placid Drive.
