In a swift response to a robbery incident, South Precinct Patrol officers apprehended Julius Schields, 27, and Shamarion Schields, 19, following a gunpoint robbery in the parking lot of 242 Twin Oaks Drive, Nashville. The event unfolded late Saturday afternoon when the suspects confronted a man, robbing him at gunpoint.

Utilizing home surveillance footage that captured the robbery, officers were able to identify the suspects fleeing the scene in a white Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle was later spotted on Antioch Pike and followed to a convenience store/gas station in the 1200 block of the same road, where both men were detained. Upon searching the vehicle, officers found the victim’s wallet on the passenger seat and a handgun with distinctive features under the driver’s seat.

Further investigations confirmed Julius Schields as the gunman, marking yet another offense in his criminal record, which includes a conviction for aggravated robbery in 2017. Julius, who was registered as an ex-convict for robbery in 2022, now faces charges of aggravated robbery, being a felon in possession of a handgun, and violating parole. Shamarion Schields, identified as the driver during the robbery and already on bond for previous charges of aggravated assault and unlawful handgun possession, has also been charged with aggravated robbery. Both suspects are currently held on a $75,000 bond as they await further legal proceedings.
