Johnson & Carroll v. State

In Johnson & Carroll v. State, 276 Ark. 56, 632 S.W.2d 416 (1982), the Court upheld appellants' convictions of aggravated robbery. In that case, one of the appellants kicked open the door of a motel room, placed a pistol to the guest's chest, and told the guest to "get them up." The guest then shot both appellants. Similarly, in the instant case, appellant, who was masked, appeared on Artis's carport, pointed a gun at him, told him to "get down," and when Artis refused to do so, appellant struck him twice in the head with the gun.
