 Kendrick M. Edwards

An alleged robber was shot and killed by the apparent victim in the breezeway of an apartment complex on Monday night.

The shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. at the Stewarts Ferry Apartments on Grove Creek Avenue.
Police said 18-year-old Joshua Jones told them he had opened his apartment door to take out the trash when he was confronted by at least two men who tried to rob him at gunpoint.

Jones said a struggle ensued, and he was able to wrangle the gun away from one of the robbers. Jones then shot the man, later identified as 20-year-old Kendrick M. Edwards.
