Man arrested after Bradenton robbery

MANATEE -- A 39-year-old man was arrested Thursday evening after he robbed two other men at gunpoint in Bradenton, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Shawn Buckingham is charged with robbing the men at a residence in the 2600 block of Fourth Street East. The victims, as well as Buckingham, were in the residence as the victims counted money that one was lending to the other, about 7 p.m. when the robbery occurred, according to the sheriff's office.

Buckingham fled after the robbery, but responding deputies located him near the intersection of First Street and 27th Avenue East and arrested him, according to the report.

Buckingham was charged with robbery, and he was being held without bond at the Manatee County jail.
