Two students suspects in off-campus robbery

SNELLVILLE -- A Gwinnett County Public Schools resource officer incurred minor injuries Monday while trying to arrest a Brookwood High School student wanted in connection with a weekend armed robbery.

Gwinnett police have implicated two Brookwood seniors -- Julian Christopher Suber, 19, and Shaquan Lemar Houston, 19, both of Lawrenceville -- in the Sunday afternoon robbery of a man on Swarthmore Drive in Lawrenceville.

Suber is accused of sticking up the victim with a handgun Houston provided from a backpack, according to arrest warrants. Each is also charged with possessing more than an ounce of marijuana at the time.

Gwinnett police secured warrants for the suspects and asked school police to arrest them Monday, when Suber resisted and caused minor injuries to one officer's shoulder, said Gwinnett Public Schools spokesman Jorge Quintana.

Both students are charged with armed robbery and felony weapons and marijuana possession. Suber faces additional counts of obstruction of law enforcement and disruption of a public school.
