MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police charged a man with aggravated robbery Tuesday, more than a week after he was shot while allegedly trying to rob a man at the city’s solid waste facility.

Raymond Thomas, 27, was charged in the Feb. 11 incident.

Police say Thomas pulled his car next to a car driven by an employee at the site on North Bellevue and robbed him at gunpoint of his backpack and wallet.

But the employee then grabbed a handgun from inside his car and fired two shots at Thomas. The man provided medical attention to Thomas until police arrived.
