Taveuan Williams pleads guilty in connection with RadioShack robbery and standoff

Michael Annan scheduled for trial in October

DENVER - One of the suspects arrested and charged after a September robbery and standoff at a Denver RadioShack store has pleaded guilty to two charges.

Taveuan Williams, 20, pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated robbery and first-degree assault in connection with the robbery that evolved into a standoff last fall. The spokeswoman for the District Attorney, Lynn Kimbrough, says Williams faces 30 years in prison when he is sentenced on July 11.

The co-defendant in the case, Michael Annan, 23, is still facing counts of kidnapping, attempted murder, assault and committing a crime of violence. His trial is scheduled for October.

Williams and Annan were arrested Sept. 7 after Denver police said they held a RadioShack manager at gunpoint for six hours when officers trapped them during a foiled robbery at the store at 5305 E. Colfax Avenue.

Police said the suspects fired at officers during the standoff that ended peacefully after police negotiators persuaded the men to drop their guns.
