KINGMAN – Mohave County Sheriff's Office says the suspect who fled when shooting between Kingman Police and another suspect broke out during an armed robbery of Dollar General on Andy Devine Avenue Sunday was taken into custody Tuesday.

MCSO detectives arrested Francis William Allison, 58 of Kingman, for two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, aggravated robbery, and misconduct involving weapons, which are all felonies.

Allison was suspected to be involved in the armed robbery that occurred at the store in the 3600 block of Andy Devine Avenue. Allison fled the scene on foot, and MCSO detectives had been actively searching since that night.
