Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas is facing charges of armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill following an incident in his hometown of Broken Arrow, Ok.

Thomas and three other individuals are accused of being involved in an attempted robbery on Tuesday, May, 28. The male victim claims the Thomas and his associates "stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing" then threatened to shoot him if he didn't leave. 

According the police report, the victim then tried to leave the scene in his vehicle, but was shot at by one of the suspects. The bullet reportedly "entered the vehicle's rear windshield and nicked the driver's head rest," and "narrowly missed the driver." (Presumably the victim)

The victim identified four suspects, telling police he has known them for several years, and said Thomas was the suspect carrying the gun. The four -- Thomas, 18-year-olds Eduard Smith and De'Carrio Taylor, and 17-year-old juveniles, all of Broken Arrow -- were arrested Wednesday at various locations in the city.

At last report, Thomas was being held on $125,000 bond at the Tulsa County Jail.

Oklahoma State has yet to comment on the incident.
