Arrest made in shooting at 18709 Limestone Commercial

Pflugerville Police have arrested Matthew Sheedy, 19, of Austin and charged with Aggravated Robbery and Possession of Marijuana in connection with a shots-fired call received on March 5, 2019, at 18709 Limestone Commercial Drive.

At approximately 6:46 p.m. on 03/05/19, the City of Pflugerville Police Department received a call of shots fired at the IHOP located in Stone Hill, 18709 Limestone Commercial Dr. Officers arrived to the scene quickly, were able to locate the suspect fleeing the restaurant, and took him into custody without incident.  He is identified as 19-year-old Matthew Sheedy of Austin.   

Investigators believe that Sheedy acted alone when he entered the restaurant and met with the 18-year-old victim, who is an IHOP employee, in the restroom with the intent to rob him of narcotics.  When the victim could not produce any narcotics, Sheedy displayed a pistol and demanded the victim's money.  A physical altercation ensued and multiple shots were fired. The firearm was removed from the suspect's possession by the victim and the suspect fled the scene.     

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he received treatment for minor injuries sustained during the incident and subsequently released.
