A woman is facing felony charges after deputies say she brought her 10-year-old child to an armed robbery in Marion County Friday night.
Deputies said 30-year-old Christina Gaud was the driver of the getaway vehicle while her accomplice, 33-year-old Rodney Snow, robbed the shop, according to a press release from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies responded to the shop at the intersection of State Road 200 and S.W. 80th Street, they saw a masked man run out of the store and into a waiting car.
The car fled a short distance before crashing at the 7900 block of S.W. 80th Street, deputies said.
Deputies said Snow ran toward a wooded area and shot himself when police surrounded him. Snow is in critical condition at a hospital, according to the release.
Deputies soon discovered that Gaud’s 10-year-old child was in the vehicle during the robbery and pursuit. The child was not injured, police said. It was not clear if Gaud was injured.
Gaud is facing charges of felony child neglect and principal to an armed robbery. The child is in the custody of the Department of Children and Families, police said.
