INDEPENDENCE TWP. (WWJ) – Police and Crime Stoppers are looking for tips in the search for a violent fugitive.
Jimmie Walker Jr., 50, is wanted for armed robbery and assault with intent to murder in connection with the crime on Saturday, Dec. 17, at Clarkston Jewelry along Dixie Highway near White Lake Road in Independence Township.
As three men held up the store, police said, an employee was shot. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
One suspect was quickly captured and taken into custody, police said, and two males fled the scene to a nearby neighborhood where they stole a Jeep.
Identified as a suspect in this case, Walker remained at large on Thursday — and a $1,000 cash reward is now being offered for information that leads to his arrest. He’s a black male, around 5’9” and 170 lbs.
