The victim told police someone pointed a gun at her and stole several items. Police later located the suspects, some of the stolen items and a handgun.

Police took Dewon Capri Campbell, 17, and Queshandis Ramon Seals, 20, into custody following the robbery. Both face charges of first degree robbery.

Campbell was suffered a gunshot wound on Sunday that left a 21-year-old man dead and a third man injured.

Police said the three victims arrived at Allen Hospital, where Otavious Brown died from a gunshot wound to the chest. Dewon Campbell and 22-year-old Aundrey Roberts were treated and released.

Seals was recently charged in relation to the death of 15 year-old Senquez Jackson of Cedar Rapids. Jackson was shot at a home in southeast Cedar Rapids on March 18.

In that case, Seals faces charges of control of a firearm by a felon and obstructing prosecution.

Dennis Warren, 13, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. Police say the two were handling a gun and had removed the clip but left a round in the chamber, which fired, hitting Jackson. Criminal complaints in that case say the gun used in the shooting did not belong to Warren but that he gave it to Seals later on the day of the shooting
