The next Friday, police identified him as the suspect in an attempted carjacking at the Walmart Neighborhood Market on Union Boulevard October 15.

Police said an elderly couple was loading groceries into their car when Miles approached them and demanded the keys to their car. The couple refused, and Miles fired a single shot into the rear bumper of the couple’s car before speeding off, according to police. No one was injured in the incident.

Police said Miles is charged with attempted aggravated robbery and crimes against at-risk persons in connection with the carjacking attempt.
