Warren man brought from Detroit to face 2 aggravated robbery charges

Staff report


A 23-year-old Warren man convicted in 2009 of being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with a fatal shooting has been charged with aggravated robbery.

Police brought Taemarr L. Walker of Kenmore Avenue Southeast back to Warren from Detroit on Friday afternoon on a warrant. The warrant charges Walker with committing an Oct. 11 robbery at the Pit Stop gas station, 1708 Youngstown Road SE.

He is also charged with an aggravated robbery in Niles, but Niles police were unable to provide any details of the charge.

On Monday, an innocent plea was entered for him in Warren Municipal Court to the aggravated robbery charge. He is in the Trumbull County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.

He is being held without eligibility to make bond on the Niles charge.

In the Warren incident, police said a 25-year-old Warren man reported he was approached at 11 p.m. by Walker, who brandished a handgun, went through his pockets and removed $600.

Walker was sentenced to one year in prison in September 2009 in the shooting death of Ahmaze D. King, 26, of Lener Avenue Southwest, at a Lancer Court apartment on Warren’s West Side on Jan. 18, 2009.

Police said Walker was with a woman in the apartment. The woman reported Walker telling her to go into the kitchen and “stay there” moments before gunfire erupted.

King was later found dead in the doorway of the apartment. He had been shot four times, including in the head.
