A teenager was arrested Wednesday night in connection to two gun-sales related robberies this week.

Jeffery Duncan III, 18, allegedly committed both robberies in the 1300 block of Quail Valley Road, not far from the Elm Hill Marina.

The victims told police they posted handguns for sale online and were contacted by a potential buyer to meet at specific addresses on the road.

Police said the first robbery occurred Sunday afternoon when the victim arrived at the predetermined location where Duncan allegedly robbed him of two firearms at gunpoint.

The second robbery occurred Monday afternoon when the victim fired one shot in self-defense and Duncan reportedly returned fire.

The victim was not struck. Duncan drove himself to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound, was treated and released.

Authorities stated Duncan admitted to partaking in both robberies.

One of the stolen guns was recovered inside his Quail Valley Road residence.

Duncan was charged with aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery and theft. He is being held in lieu of $180,000 bond.
