ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County teenager is accused of pointing a gun at an Albany Police Officer during an investigation.  

The grand jury indicted 18-year-old Shauntavious Anthony on charges of aggravated assault on a peace officer and various gun crimes.  

On March 5th, APD Investigator Charlie Roberts stopped Anthony in a grocery store parking lot at Gordon and South Slappey and asked him questions about a string of armed robberies.

Prosecutors say Anthony pulled a gun. "The officer and his partner responded by drawing their guns. No shots were fired according to what we understand now, but is a very scary situation for everyone involved," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.  

Anthony ran and was arrested five days later. He remains in the Dougherty County jail.
