Brunswick Man Enters Plea in 2022 Shooting and Armed Robbery
State v. Larone Adriese Chambliss

March 4, 2024

District Attorney Keith Higgins announces that Laronse Adriese Chambliss, 21, of Brunswick, GA, entered a non-negotiated guilty plea in Glynn County Superior Court on March 4, 2024, to Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Firearm During Commission of a Felony. Chambliss entered his plea just before the commencement of the trial in his case.

The facts of the case show that on December 28, 2022, the victim in this case was in Brunswick for the evening, when he went on the Grinder App to meet up with another male. The male he contacted directed him to an address on Pine Street in Brunswick. Upon arriving at the location, the victim was approached by two black males wearing face coverings. One of the men opened his passenger side door and pointed a handgun at him and demanded his wallet. The victim then sped away. As he did so, both of men opened fire on his vehicle, striking him once in the shoulder. He was able to get back to his motel and call 911.

Police located twelve shell casings at the crime scene; nine were 22mm rounds and three were 9mm rounds. During the course of the investigation, Chambliss was identified as a suspect in some unrelated cases and was questioned about the December 28th shooting case. He admitted he was present with his co-defendant in this case, who he said was the one that opened the passenger side door and started shooting when the victim fled. After initially denying he had a handgun, Chambliss admitted he had the 9mm and fired at least once shot. He said he assumed his co-defendant intended to rob the victim but denied knowing ahead of time.

Chambliss still has an outstanding armed robbery and home invasion indictment in which he is charged with his co-defendant in this case. He also has an outstanding burglary indictment.

Sentencing is being withheld until the resolution of his remaining cases, as well as those of his co-defendant. Chambliss could face life in prison for the armed robbery charge plus another 25 years for the aggravated assault and gun charges.
