Christopher Demond Almon faces both a felony armed robbery charge and a felony aggravated assault charge after police say his DNA was found on a baseball cap left behind at a liquor store robbery that ended in a shooting.

According to an arrest warrant, Almond is accused of stealing $4,500 on Oct. 22, 2011, from GoodTimes Beverage Center on Canton Road, after robbing both the business and customers inside the store using a 9mm pistol.

Two black men wearing masks entered the store and reportedly demanded money when one of the suspects shot a store clerk in the leg, shattering the victim’s femur, according to an arrest warrant.

A gun was also reportedly pointed at the head of a customer.

Police say Almon’s DNA was found on an Atlanta Braves baseball cap that was left behind an O’Reilly’s Auto Parts store where the victims were seen running after the incident.

An arrest warrant did not list an address for Almon and no booking information could be found through the Cobb Sheriff’s Office website on Sunday.
