Daniel Jordan Zavala is wanted for his alleged involvement in a string of armed convenience store robberies that occurred in Tennessee.
On March 21, 2016, between the hours of 6:05 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., an individual, armed with a handgun, robbed four businesses in Tennessee. Zavala was later identified as the alleged robber.
During the first robbery, Zavala allegedly fired multiple shots into the window and door to the office near the back of a gas station. When he was unable to breach the window or door, he fled the business on foot.
During the last robbery, Zavala allegedly retrieved a shotgun and a .357 Magnum revolver that was being stored behind a counter by the store's owner. The store clerk began fighting with Zavala, and Zavala allegedly shot the clerk on the left side of their body. Zavala then fled the business on foot with the firearm he already possessed, as well as the stolen shotgun and revolver.
Zavala was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery by the State of Tennessee, Shelby County, and on March 23, 2016, a state warrant was issued for his arrest. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on April 6, 2016, after Zavala was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
