PINE BLUFF, Ark.- Pine Bluff police need your help finding a man wanted in connection to a robbery and shooting at a liquor store.

Officers say Tyray Drones, 40, is wanted for aggravated robbery and first-degree battery.

Investigators say Drones entered Liquor Mart on the 3100 block of S. Olive Street shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday.

Police say Drones walked into the store wearing a mask, shot the clerk in the leg and then ran off with some cash.

That attack was captured on the store’s surveillance video.

“He just came in and start shooting,” said Babby Multni, the store owner. “He didn’t ask for no money, nothing.”

Police say the suspect is seen in a mask in all the surveillance video, but when he fled he took the mask off and a responding officer recognized him.

“He was able to get close enough to get a look at him and realize he actually knows him personally,” explained Officer Richard Wegner.

According to police Drones also goes by the name Tyray Bullard, is about 6’02” and weighs about 220 pounds. Officers say his last known address is in the 6000 block of South Cedar Street in Pine Bluff and he might be driving a teal-colored GMC Yukon.

If you see Drones or know where he may be, call the Detective Division at 870-541-5300, dispatch at 870-541-5300 or you can share a tip on their Facebook page.
