CLEMSON — Police arrested a suspect Saturday in a March 4 robbery and shooting at a Clemson apartment complex.

Montrez O’Brian Jones, 23, was arrested in Seneca and charged with possession of a firearm during the committal of a violent crime, three counts of kidnapping, three counts of armed robbery and attempted murder.

The Clemson Police Department received a 911 call on March 4, reporting that someone had been shot and robbed at the Goldenwoods apartment complex, located on Georgetown St.

Officers arrived to find a male victim shot in the upper leg and robbed of cash, along with two female victims who had also been robbed.

The witnesses told police a black male wearing a black hoodie entered the apartment with a pistol asking for money. After receiving money from all three of the apartment’s occupants, the suspect demanded more cash before shooting the male in the upper leg and fleeing the area in a white Ford Crown Victoria.

The subsequent investigation led to the identification of Jones as a suspect and arrest warrants being issued.

Jones was denied bond by a Clemson judge and is currently being held at the Pickens County Detention Center.
